Just as team vehicles were leaving the previous incident we were alerted to an ankle injury near Catbells summit after a woman had slipped on wet grass. After a brisk kit re-sort en route and with fresh team members going direct the casualty was quickly found. Following pain relief and splinting of the ankle, the woman was sledged down the side of Catbells to the road. Her partner then took her to hospital for x-rays and further checks.
