*** Incident No.8 ***

Sunday 7 February 2016, 14.24hrs

The Team was called to assist the North East Ambulance Service with the evacuation of a male walker in his 50s. The walker had sustained a serious lower leg injury on Hadrian’s Wall above Hotbank Crags.

Along with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team, Team members carried and sledged the injured walker off the hill on a Bell stretcher to the crewed Ambulance at Hotbank Farm.

We hope the walker makes a full and swift recovery, and is out on the hills again very soon.

A total of 13 members were involved for 3 hours.
