Icy conditions continued on Sunday and for the second time in a week Latrigg claimed another shoulder injury. A walker descending Latrigg slipped on an icy path and reported a possible dislocated shoulder. The team sent a Land Rover up to the Latrigg car park and brought the casualty down to the warmth of our base. A team doctor provided pain relief and examined the injury and believed it to be broken rather than dislocated. The casualty was advised to visit hospital for further checks and treatment.
