The teams arrived at Kinder Scout at around 1.30pm on Friday (April 26) to rescue a woman who injured her knee while out walking with her family.

The woman was unable to walk further and given pain relief by crews who put her leg in a splint.

She was then placed on a vacuum mattress and carried on a stretcher to Edale where she was moved to a family vehicle to be taken to hospital.
