Incident 42/2018 – Jul. 6th Fri 14.29 Thornton Force area, Ingleton, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) requested the team’s assistance to help a walker who had fallen whilst on the Waterfalls Trail. The injured person was eventually found near Pecca Falls, being assisted back to the car park by a companion, as YAS had told them an ambulance would not be available for 4 hours.

The casualty was assessed, and assisted/escorted to a team vehicle at Tom’s Cabin, and conveyed back to their own vehicle at the Waterfalls car park, where the companion was able to convey them to hospital for assessment.

As team members made their way back to their vehicle, they came across piles of litter left near Thornton Falls. This was collected and taken for disposal. Please, enjoy our beautiful area by all means, but take your rubbish back home with you, rather than relying on others to clean up after you!
