INCIDENT 29/2020 – Jun. 27th. Sat. 18.04hrs –  Ingleton Waterfalls Trail – Mountain Incident

A visitor (f) rang 999 for YAS, following a fall and sustaining an ankle injury ‘between Baxengill and Snow Falls, at the viewing bridge’ on the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail. With no response to a PhoneFind message, team members set off to meet at the Beezleys caravan park and the duty controller tried telephoning the casualty, to confirm her position. He was told that she had been able to walk into Ingleton village and help was not needed. Team members were stood down and the duty controller advised the YAS Emergency Operations Centre, who were unaware of the situation.
