A group were hacking up Latrigg fell yesterday evening when one of the party fell from her horse. The woman landed heavily and heard a popping sound from her ankle. The group dialled 999 and asked for the Police who organised for Mountain Rescue to attend due to the difficult access. Using the landrover, the team were able to quickly reach the casualty and make an assessment of the injury. After some strong pain relief her leg was splinted and she was transported in the team vehicle to the road where her partner could then take her for further treatment at Carlisle Infirmary.
