A walker had to be carried to an ambulance today by rescue volunteers after slipping and injuring her ankle.
The 68-year-old fell close to the River Ure stepping stones near Swinithwaite.
Members of the Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team responded and treated the casualty before carrying her on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance.
It was the second call-out for the team in as many days after they responded to an injured worker near Richmond on Tuesday.
Rescue controller Steve Clough said: “It has been a busy couple of days for the team.
“With weather improving more people are venturing out to enjoy the countryside.
“We wish the casualty a speedy recovery.”
Ten team members were involved in the rescue which took about 90 minutes to carry out.
