CONISTON Mountain Rescue Team was called to an incident involving a bike in a hard-to-reach location.

The team posted an update on social media reporting the incident, which happened at 3.39 pm on Tuesday at Belle Grange.

"Another fine Autumn day saw a gentleman fall off his bike on the bumpy track beside Windermere's west bank," the team wrote.

"A passing cyclist came to his aid. 

"Cumbria Police asked us to help because there was no road nearby, but the track was good enough for our Land Rover to get to the casualty.

"We assessed and treated the gentleman for numerous abrasions to his arm. 

"We then drove him back to his car and he and his wife were able to make their own way back to their accommodation after being given advice on his self-care for the next 24 hours. 

"Eight volunteer members attended for one hour and 46 minutes."
