We assisted police in checking the area after multiple reports of flares were recieved... we think someone was mucking about... cheers.. we had nothing better to do..
A 23-year-old female mountain biker parted company with her bike. She suffered cuts, bruises and grazes to her forearm and hip, and a bang on the head (wearing a helmet). An issue of great concern to most cyclists, her bike was relatively undamaged!
An 11-year-old boy slipped and sustained a bad gash to his knee. He was treated at the scene by the group leader, a Furness MRT member, and a Paramedic who was called, and carried to an ambulance by stretcher, by ourselves and Kendal MRT, who had also been called.
We were asked to assist the ambulance service with the evacuation of a man who had suffered head and neck injuries on a high section of the adventure playground at Brockhole Visitor Centre. They had treated his injuries, but needed us to lower him off with our ropes. Dropping him down the slide was ruled out!
Kendal MRT called us to assist them with a search for two missing people overdue on a walk from Kentmere to Troutbeck. They were reported missing by their mother, when they failed to show up at the pub that she was waiting in. They were located in another pub. We all went home.
very high winds and heavy rain.
