A 60 year old female slipped and stumbled whilst descending Catbells towards Hause Gate injuring her ankle. The woman’s husband said he heard a snapping sound but regardless the woman was unable to continue her walk. They called 999 and asked for Mountain Rescue help. A small team made their way up to the casualty from Manesty where they gave pain relief before splinting the leg and stretchering down towards Littletown in the Newlands Valley. The pair were then taken to Keswick so the husband could take his wife to hospital for an x-ray.
