More injuries in Peak District

A 16-year-old student was stretchered from a footpath after breaking his ankle while on a field trip.

The student, from Rotherham, was with a party on an outdoor education trip near Millstone Edge, Hathersage on Friday when he went over on his ankle, causing an open fracture.

Group leaders gave the boy first aid and alerted mountain rescuers. Edale and Buxton Mountain Rescue Teams went to the scene and an Edale team paramedic treated the student at the site, on a rocky footpath.

He was then stretchered to a waiting ambulance and taken to hospital.
