Incident 44/2018 – Jul. 14th Sat 09.54 Nr Grey Gill, Gordale, Malham, North Yorkshire – Mountain Rescue

Almost as soon as the lamb-rescue group was committed to the 2 km off-road drive to the Gritstone Pot area of Ingleboroough, a member of an expedition group (f, 15) was reported to have a knee injury, above the path from Gordale Bridge towards the Malham Raikes road. On arrival, team members found that she was in no pain, but her knees had locked so that she could not walk — a pre-existing condition which caused problems from time to time. The patient was carried, by stretcher to a team vehicle, then taken to meet her group’s own transport, so that she did not require an ambulance.
