A walker suffered a painful ankle after a slip on muddy grass. She was part of a group on the path between Stockley Bridge and Styhead Pass. With poor mobile reception one of the party made their way down the valley to the nearest landline to call for help. [Note – the public phone box at Seathwaite is out of order and this has been reported to BT]. On arrival Keswick team provided pain relief, splinted the ankle, and stretchered her to their car at Seathwaite. She was then driven by her friends to West Cumberland Hospital for further checks.
