18:40hrs The team were called to assist a cyclist who had crashed at speed descending the Great Dunn Fell road after hitting a sheep. The casualty was with a friend who stabilised him - a rapid response paramedic joined us at scene and treated the casualty for serious facial injuries and a fractured arm. The Great North Air Ambulance from Teeside evacuated the casualty to hospital and he has since undergone facial reconstructive surgery and is making a recovery at home. We pass on our best wishes to him.
