Agencies Involved: Keswick MRT
A couple of well-equipped walkers were descending from Ullock Pike when one slipped and injured her ankle. She tried to walk a short distance but found it extremely difficult and painful. They sought shelter from the wind and called for help. Some kind passers by provided a group shelter to protect from the cold wind. The casualty and her husband were located by the team near Kiln Potts on Ullock Pike ridge. The casualty’s ankle was examined and splinted before she was loaded onto the stretcher for a carry and sled back to the road below from where the couple made their own way to Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle for an x-ray.
