Shortly after 3 pm this afternoon (6/12/20) the team were contacted by North West Ambulance Service to assist with a 12yr old who had fallen from a bike in Lee Mill Quarry.
The team were deployed and assisted the crew to transport the casualty to the awaiting ambulance using our tracked Polaris.
The vehicles returned to base to get washed and cleaned ready for whenever they are next required. This was the buggy’s second wash of the day – the first being required after we spent some time testing the access routes through some new gates at Pendle.
The Rossendale & Pendle Mountain Rescue Team is a fully voluntary organisation which responds to those in need in our local community.
