*** Incident No.34 ***

At just before 2.00pm the Team and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Teamwas called to assist the North East Ambulance Service. A 22 year female had fallen off a motorcycle in north Northumberland, near Kirknewton. She had a suspected fractured lower leg.

Due to her location we also requested the assistance of Borders Search & Rescue Unit and ultimately RAF Boulmer to fly the casualty to hospital. Possibly the last time operationally we will see the Seaking.

In total six members from three MRTs and two Land Rover ambulances were involved.
