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.
