A 22-YEAR-OLD man, taking part in an organised Three Peaks charity walk on Saturday, suffered a knee injury while tackling Ingleborough.

He was on the descent towards Horton-in-Ribblesdale when his knee locked.

Members of the Cave Rescue Organisation were called out just before 3.30pm and found the injured man near Borrins. He had managed to make his own way off the hill.

And, just as the team returned to its Clapham base, it was called out again to another Three Peaks walker who had collapsed above Braithwaite Wife Hole on his way up Ingleborough from Chapel-le-Dale.

The 31-year-old man was treated at the scene before being airlifted to hospital.
