At the same time the team was dealing with a rescue in the Langstrath valley, NWAS (North West Ambulance Service) alerted us to another incident. A 45 year old woman had tripped and badly injured her ankle on rough ground near the Derwent Isle boat house on the path between Keswick and Friars Crag. As this is close to our Base a small team quickly got to the scene and provided analgesia and splinted the ankle. The casualty was then judged fit enough to be driven to Carlisle hospital by one of her party.
