A team from the Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation were called to assist a pensioner who collapsed with chest pains at the top of Malham Cove steps yesterday.

The 70-year-old woman walker was treated at the scene by paramedics before being stretchered to a rescue team ambulance.

She was later transferred to a road ambulance at the Yorkshire Dales National Park centre in Malham.

No update on the woman's condition has been released.
