Girl rescued from cave

A TEENAGE girl had to be rescued from a Peak District cave after slipping and injuring her back.

The 14-year-old was part of a larger group exploring Bagshawe Cavern in Bradwell when she slipped on wet rock and fell.

Derbyshire Police took a 999 call about the incident at around 4.45pm on Sunday, February 26, and called for assistance from the Cave Rescue organisation to help get the girl out.

Cave Rescue arrived at the cave and found the girl inside with another child and two adults, with the rest of the group waiting outside, several hours later.

The teenager was rescued by around 7pm and an ambulance was called to take her to hospital.
