A LAKE District mountain rescue team has had a busy week responding to five incidents.

On September 26, Langdale Ambleside MRT were called to a man who had taken a tumble and sustained a lower leg injury close to the summit of Wansfell.

Team members were able to successfully treat the casualty and evacuate them off the fell before Storm Agnes hit.

On September 29, the team was called to two different callouts. They first provided treatment to a casualty who had fallen and sustained lower leg injuries on the shore of Grasmere.

Ten team members eventually managed to evacuate the casualty to an ambulance after two hours.

On returning from the previous rescue, the team was alerted to an individual who had sustained injuries to their lower leg when high up near the bad step on Crinkle Crags.

Great North Air Ambulance and Coast Guard Rescue were unable to get to the casualty because of strong winds and heavy showers so the LAMRT team headed up on foot while Kendal Mountain Rescue got a helicopter lift up to the Red Tarn.

A wet and tired team were eventually able to hand the casualty over to North West Ambulance staff after six hours.

On October 1, shortly after lunchtime, the LAMRT team were called to someone who had slipped and sustained lower leg injuries on Dow Bank. They were treated by the team and evacuated off the fell before being met by an ambulance.

And on October 2, 13 team members were deployed on foot to someone who had fallen near to Angle Tarn. With the help of the Great North Air Ambulance Service, the casualty was seen to and evacuated for further treatment.
