As team members were deployed the Derbyshire Rutland and Leicester Air Ambulance was able to give the young lady a lift off the hill.

A land ambulance took her to hospital freeing up the air ambulance for other duties.

The team also thanked a nearby farm which kindly accommodated a number of team vehicles and an ambulance in their yard while the incident was ongoing.
