A three peaks walker (f, 22) was reported to have fallen, sustaining an ankle injury, on the descent from Ingleborough towards Horton in Ribblesdale. One companion remained with her, while the other members of their larger group continued. As they were nervous about nearby cattle, NYP advised them to take shelter a little way off the route. Two CRO members took a team Land Rover in from Selside towards ‘Sulber Cross-roads’ to meet the casualty and her companion. They administered pain relief, splinted the ankle and helped the patient into the vehicle. She and her companion were driven down to Horton to rejoin their compatriots, who would take her to hospital.
