Man injured off the Snake Pass taken to hospital

A rescue operation was launched after a man was injured in the Nether North Grain area off the Snake Pass on Sunday afternoon (June 21). 

Mountain rescue crews and an air ambulance were called out to help police after a walker from Huddersfield found the man injured at around 12.15pm. 

The man was taken to hospital in Sheffield, where he was understood to be in a stable condition. 

Three land ambulances were heard going up Sheffield Road, while an air ambulance helicopter also landed on Pyegrove playing fields.
