A mountain rescue team had to save a man from Lovers’ Leap near Dovedale.

The 20-year-old man had injured his upper leg while out walking with his family on Wednesday evening, April 23.

The incident happened when the man twisted awkwardly whilst getting up from a wall, possibly damaging ligaments in his leg. He tried to continue on the popular river-side path back to the car park at Dovedale but soon found he was unable to continue and had to stop about a mile short of his destination.
