RESCUE teams assisted a woman who had been injured on Holme Fell. 

Members of the Coniston Mountain Rescue Team were dispatched to the Holme Fell on March 22 after a walker had fallen on the path down from the Fell and twisted her ankle. 

The team were despatched in two Land Rovers to Yew Tree Tarn, before walking up the fell to her location.

She was assessed, given pain relief, splinted and then stretchered down to our Land Rovers where she was driven to our base for handover to a land ambulance.

10 volunteer team members attended, and the incident took 2 hours.
