CLAPHAM Cave Rescue Organisation was called out to a female walker in Wellington boots who had slipped on the rocky path above Trow Gill, between Gaping Gill and Clapham.

The 34-year-old sustained an ankle injury in the incident on Sunday at around 5pm.

The initial call-out message suggested that the casualty was at the entrance to Ingleborough Cave, so only a small team was called out. This situation was remedied as soon as her true position was known. YAS paramedics and team members splinted the injured leg, then stretchered her down to a CRO Land Rover, waiting below Trow Gill. This took her down to a road ambulance waiting by the show cave and this, in turn, took her to Clapham, prior to a hospital visit.
