Volunteers from Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team were called out today to help an injured walker.

The incident happened near Aysgarth Falls in Wensleydale.

They were treated at the scene by the volunteers before being evacuated to the road to be taken to hospital.

The team arrived quickly as they were already en-route back from Lincolnshire where they were called to yesterday to help with the flooding relief effort.
