A TEENAGE boy was rescued from Malham Cove at just before 6pm on Saturday by members of the Cave Rescue Organisation (CRO) after he fell and twisted his knee.

A CRO spokesperson said: "The 12 year old had fallen and twisted his knee on the steps to the side of Malham Cove.

"Because he couldn’t bend or straighten it, the team splinted and stretchered him to a waiting CRO vehicle and transported him down into Malham, where the young lad was transferred to the family vehicle for onward transport to hospital."
