The team were called out to Dovedale at lunchtime today. A lady in her 60s had fallen injuring her leg. The Ambulance Service and Midlands Air Ambulance Charity were also in attendance. The river Dove was particularly high, covering the stepping stones, so the lady was carried by stretcher to Lin Dale and then to Thorpe Pasture. She was transported by road ambulance to the Royal Derby Hospital for treatment, where it was confirmed she had sustained three fractures to her lower limb.
