Rescuers go to aid of injured walker

MEMBERS of Edale and Buxton mountain rescue teams went to the aid of an injured walker on Kinder Scout.

Some team members were deployed to the top of Ollerbrook Clough, during the incident last Friday afternoon, however the air ambulance was able to land close by the incident site.

The crew treated a 46-year-old female from Newark, Nottinghamshire, for wrist injuries and she was flown to Chesterfield Royal Hospital for further treatment.
