CLEVELAND Mountain Rescue Team recorded their third call-out in three-days after helping a man who injured his leg whilst out walking.

The team were called by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service at 1.35pm yesterday afternoon to a report of a man who had sustained a potential broken leg after falling whilst out walking with his wife.

From the description given he appeared to be somewhere in the vicinity of Captain Cook's Monument.

Team members were deployed to meeting point at Gribdale Gate car-park and made their way towards the monument accompanied by one of their Land Rover ambulances.

Their support vehicle, on-loan from Mercedes-Benz of Teesside, remained at the meeting with a team member, so that he could direct more of the team’s volunteer members as they arrived.

They soon came across the ambulance crew who were treating the man for the injury to his left leg.

He was then helped into the rescue team’s Land Rover where he was able to sit down; no stretcher was required on this occasion.

Team members then drove him and one of the paramedics back down to the car-park where other Cleveland MRT members assisted the injured man into the ambulance for onward transport to hospital.

A total of 15 team members attended the incident which lasted just under one-hour, plus vehicle decontamination time in line with Covid-19 procedures back at their base.
