A spokesman fro Wasdale Mountain Rescue said: "A walker sustained an ankle injury on the summit of Great Gable.

"Due to the risk of team members being injured because of the high winds, a coastguard helicopter was requested.

"We are very thankful that they attended, and took the casualty to hospital. Our team members did not need to go on the high fell and returned intact!

"The two friends of the casualty were taken to Borrowdale by helicopter and met by a Keswick team member, thanks to them for this."
