Early afternoon yesterday, the North East Ambulance Service requested our support for an injured walker. The walker had sustained a leg injury whilst on the St Cuthbert’s Way downstream of Hethpool Linn in the Northumberland National Park.
The Team and North of Tyne MRT evacuated the walker on a Bell stretcher before being transferred into a Landrover for the remainder of the journey to the crewed Ambulance at the road head.
We wish the walker well and hope he’ll be back in the hills very soon.
The incident involved 14 members for three hours.
