A woman slipped on a rock and fell while walking with a large group of friends in the Stonethwaite area. The fall exacerbated an existing lower back injury causing her a lot of pain. Despite her injuries she managed to continue to walk back onto the main Langstrath valley path until she could not continue any further. Her friends dialled 999 and asked for mountain rescue. The Team were able to drive the Landrover to the casualty where she was given strong pain relief and carefully stretchered to a waiting ambulance at Stonethwaite.
