*** Incident No.23 ***

Tuesday 17 May, 15.21hrs

The busy period continues with a request for assistance from the North East Ambulance Service. A female in her 60s had sustained a head injury whilst cycling in the Kielder Water area.

At the time of the request Paramedics were en-route to the casualty’s location which was believed to be just off the Lakeside way, near to Silvas Capitalis (or the ‘forest head’). Given the location it was highly likely that the Ambulance would be able to access the scene.

In case assistance with the evacuation was required and given the travel time involved, North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves despatched a Land Rover and six Team member to Kielder.

Almost an hour into the incident, the Ambulance Service confirmed they had been able to access the scene and treat the casualty. The Teams were stood down.

The incident involved 7 Team members for 2 hours.
