A TEENAGER dislocated her knee after slipping while putting her socks on in the Lake District.

Keswick Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT) attended the incident at Borrowdale at around 4.30pm on Thursday.

A KMRT spokesman said the casualty, a 17-year-old female, had slipped while putting her socks on and 'fell awkwardly', resulting in the dislocation.

KMRT team members met up with paramedics and the girl's father at Stonethwaite Farm campsite, and walked to the casualty. Her knee was put back in place and she was stretchered to an ambulance.
