She slipped on rocks and fractured and dislocated her lower leg.

Seven members of Buxton and Edale Teams Snatch Squad were called out.

The woman, from the Doncaster area, was evacuated by stretcher a short distance over rocky, uneven ground to the waiting aircraft and flown to hospital for further treatment.
