Kinder Mountain Rescue Team was called out to help an injured walker on Thursday.

The crew were called to Middle Moor, Hayfield, alongside their colleagues from Glossop to help the female walker, who had slipped and suffered a fractured leg.

An air ambulance was also called to help, but due to inclement weather, was unable to attend.

The walker was carried by stretcher to a waiting ambulance and taken to Stepping Hill Hospital for treatment.
