Rescuers come to aid of injured walker at Hackfall Woods

Rescue volunteers came to the aid of an injured walker at Hackfall Woods today.

Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team (SMRT) was initially called to the scene near Grewelthorpe.

They only had a few members available and so asked for help from Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association (UWFRA) and RAF Leeming Mountain Rescue Team.

A spokesperson for SMRT said: “It was a great multi agency effort including the crews from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

“Thanks also The Tan Hill Inn for letting us run control from their restaurant.”
