A 23 YEAR old woman was taken to hospital at around 5pm on Saturday after falling on rough and boggy ground at Fell Close, Chapel-le-dale.

A spokesperson for the Clapham based Cave Rescue Organisation (CRO) said: " A 23 year old female walker sustained an ankle injury on rough and boggy terrain, so that she was unable to put weight on her injured leg.

"A companion rang the police for help and CRO team members responded. After assessment by a team doctor, the patient was stretchered to the road-head and transferred to a friend’s car for the journey to hospital."
