A WALKER has been rescued in the Lake District.
Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team were called to the assistance of a man who had slipped on an icy path near Ullswater today.
The 39-year-old, from Carlisle, was walking at Aira Force when he slipped, resulting in a suspected fracture dislocation of his right leg.
The team said the man was in a lot of pain and needed pain relief before his leg could be moved and splinted.
Once his leg was secured and in a splint, the man was put in a stretcher and carried to one of the team’s Landrover ambulances. The man was then driven to the road and transferred into an ambulance. He was then taken to the Cumberland Infirmary.
