Last updated at 22:15, Wednesday, 19 February 2014
A CUMBRIA mountain rescue team had two calls outs in two days.
Coniston Mountain Rescue Team responded to a call for help when a couple walking on the Coniston Fells reported themselves lost in mist in the Levers Water region on Monday afternoon.
The team’s search dogs assisted by two other dog’s from Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs were deployed and the two walkers were found crag fast on Great How Crags, North of Levers Water.
Once made safe the couple were lowered to safety on ropes and escorted off the hill and taken to the team’s base in Coniston.
Twelve members of the team were in action again late on Wednesday morning when a lady slipped while walking in the Outgate area between Hawkshead and Ambleside and suffered serious lower leg injuries.
The lady was treated by Team members and staff from North West Ambulance Service and the Great North Air Ambulance.
She was stretchered to the aircraft and taken to Furness General Hospital, Barrow, for further treatment.
