A female walker in her early 70s sustained a lower leg injury, whilst on a walk along the River Derwent from Blanchland. The North East Ambulance Service requested the assistance of Mountain Rescue, and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves responded immediately.
Team members assisted in locating the female and her husband, and evacuated her after being assessed by a NEAS Paramedic on a Mountain Rescue stretcher to the awaiting ambulance.
We hope the female makes a full and swift recovery and is back out walking the stunning #Northumberland countryside soon.
The incident involved 12 Team members for 3 hours 20 minutes.
