The 28-year-old woman was descending towards Cumberland Brook in Wildboarclough when she slipped and sustained a lower leg injury which immobilised her.

16 team members attended the scene and transferred the woman to a mountain rescue stretcher before leaving her in the care of North West Ambulance Service.

The woman, from Grappenhall in Warrington, was transferred to Macclesfield Hospital for further treatment.
