A couple were walking on Outerside when one slipped and suffered a very painful wrist injury. After calling the emergency services the team sent out two vehicles. One approached from Braithwaite and parked below Stile End, whilst the other made its way to Force Crag Mine in Coledale. The team met the party on the summit of Outerside and after pain relief and splinting the casualty was quickly sledged down to Force Crag Mine. From here they were taken to their vehicle and they made their own way to Carlisle hospital for further treatment.
