The volunteers from Edale Mountain Rescue Team had a particularly busy bank holiday weekend, attending six callouts.

It means they have now attended 105 in total so far this year. 

On Monday (30 August), they aided a climber who had fallen 10 metres landing heavily and inuring both legs before soon after helping a walker who had fallen sustaining an ankle injury. Both were taken to hospital by ambulance for further treatment. 

The incidents on Saturday and Sunday involved a walker who had taken a tumble, a climber who had suffered a nasty knee injury and a woman out walking who had tripped and banged her head and hurt her leg. 

On Bank Holiday Monday, Kinder MRT were also called out this time to assist a 27-year-old man who had suffered an ankle injury at Mermaids Pool.  

The area's Mountain Rescue Teams are on call every day of the year and rely 100 per cent on donations.
