Buxton and Edale mountain rescue teams were called out to save a climber who had collapsed at Bamford Edge on Friday.

The casualty blacked out while on the crag and his climbing partner lowered him to the ground.

He was carried on a stretcher to the land ambulance and transferred to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, in Sheffield, for treatment.
