A Glossop MRT spokesperson said: "Team members made their way to Glossop Low shooting cabin by Land Rover, from where they set off to the casualty's location. The casualty was quickly found and treated for a lower leg injury.

"He was then carried by stretcher back to the team's vehicle at Glossop Low, to be transported back to our base where he was met by members of his family, who took him to hospital for further treatment. The team stood down at 9.45pm."
