A busy period for Northumberland’s mountain rescue teams continued after they were called out again yesterday afternoon.

Volunteers from North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team were dispatched to Hadrian’s Wall on Thursday after a casualty sustained a lower leg injury.

When it became clear that the casualty, who was part of a group of students, could no longer continue to walk, their group leader called 999 for Mountain Rescue.

The team advised to make the casualty comfortable, before arriving to put the student’s leg in a splint and transport them to the waiting ambulance in their Land Rover.

In a post on North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team’s Facebook page, volunteers thanked the group’s leader for being well prepared and wish the casualty a very speedy recovery.
