Glossop Mountain Rescue Team helped rescue a 24-year-old woman on Monday night who had fallen during a walk between Crowden and Hayfield.

Volunteers were called out at 3pm and the search lasted nearly six hours.

The casualty, part of a Duke of Edinburgh group from Oxfordshire, was found with a pain in her chest at the top of Wildboar Grain, near Bleaklow Head.

A spokesman confirmed she was treated at the scene and carried to a point where the RAF Seaking helicopter could land.

Members of the Kinder Mountain Rescue Team were also in attendance.
