Earlier today (10/10/2020) at approximately 11:00, the team was called to assist a mountain biker who had taken a fall and sustained a head injury. The nature of the injury meant that the Air Ambulance was also on scene and the team assisted with carrying the patient to the helicopter for his onward journey to the hospital.
As ever we wish the gentleman a speedy recovery.
