A WOMAN has been taken to hospital after suffering arm, neck and head injuries in the Cleveland Hills.

Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service at 2.45pm Saturday, June 27, to assist with the rescue of a 29-year-old.

The Guisborough woman had fallen whilst walking near to Wainstones on the Cleveland Way.

She reportedly sustained arm, neck and head injuries and was treated at a car park by the ambulance crew before being taken to hospital for further assessment and treatment.

Mountain Rescue team members attended the RV-point at Clay Bank carpark to assist in the rescue.

As both crew arrived, it was reported that, with help from other walkers, the injured woman was making her way to site.

Crews were deployed to meet them on the way and the group arrived shortly afterwards.

A team of 20 attended the call-out, which lasted just over one-hour, while two others were co-ordinating the response remotely.

The volunteer-led Mountain Rescue provides 24-hour search and rescue service for people who are injured or missing.
