A walker was ascending Scales Fell when a slip caused her to fall and break her wrist. A passing walker provided some pain relief and helped with the call for mountain rescue support. Keswick team dispatched a vehicle to help her off the hill but by the time of our arrival she had managed to walk herself down to the White Horse Inn at Scales. After an examination by a team medic a friend of the woman drove her to hospital for an x-ray and further treatment.
