    We were called to assist the ambulance service with the evacuation of a lady who had taken a fall to the west of Top Tor, sustaining a lower leg injury in the process.

    Our volunteers were with the casualty in less than 25 minutes from getting the call where we packaged her on to our stretcher, carrying her to Hemsworthy Gate and the waiting land ambulance.

    The lady was taken to hospital to have her injury assessed and we hope she is back on her feet again soon.
