Another busy day for the Team. 
The first incident was to a walker in the Eastern Fells who had sustained a leg injury and was unable to continue with her walk. The Team were assisted by Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team and were able to stretcher carry the casualty from the fell and take her to hospital for further treatment.

Not long after hanging our wet kit up to dry, we were called to the second shout of the day, this time to assist North West Ambulance Service. A young mountain biker had sustained injuries coming off his bike near Brampton. Due to the location we were able to assist by loading the casualty on to our stretcher and carrying him to the awaiting Ambulance.

We wish both casualties a speedy recovery!
