We were called at 11:45 to assist a lady with an ankle injury at Peter Nook Wood, just above Kinder Reservoir. We were able to drive through Upper House and a short walk took us to the casualty. We provided splinting and pain relief before carrying the casualty on our stretcher back to our Landrovers. We drove her down to our base in Hayfield and handed her to an EMAS ambulance crew, who took her to hospital.
