Buxton Mountain Rescue Team were called to Barmoor at just after 3pm on Sunday to help colleagues at East Midlands Ambulance Service and the air ambulance with an accident involving a quad bike in the fields to the south of the A623.

A rider had suffered back injuries in the fall so mountain rescue team members were asked to help transfer the patient to the helicopter.

Initial medical treatment was given by a First Responder Paramedic supported by the Air Ambulance crew when they arrived. The patient was then transferred to the aircraft for onward transfer to hospital and further medical treatment.
