Yesterday evening (25/8/21) at approximately 18:50 the team was requested to Lee Mill Quarry to assist a mountain biker who had sustained shoulder and collar bone injuries.
The team stabilised the casualty and administered pain relief before using one of our specialist stretchers to evacuate them to an ambulance waiting at the roadhead.
The casualty was then taken to Preston Trauma Centre and we wish them a speedy recovery.
