Mountain rescue teams were called out twice in one day, to the same location for similar assists.

On Sunday, volunteers from the Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team were mobilised to Gisburn Forest Bike Trails twice in the space of three hours.

The first callout came just after 12pm from the ambulance service, who requested help from the volunteers to rescue a man who had fallen while out cycling the trails.

A spokesperson for the Mountain Rescue Team said: "The incident happened while he was riding down 'Hully Gully' where he had fallen and landed heavily on his face and shoulder.

"The team arrived on scene as the air ambulance crew arrived.

"He was treated for his injuries and then transported on a bell mountain rescue stretcher to the air ambulance for transport to Royal Preston Hospital."

As the group of volunteers headed down to the cafe to grab a drink, their assistance was further requested after another man had come off his bike in the forest and suffered lower leg injuries.

The spokesperson added: "As we were about to enjoy a brew at Gisburn Forest Cafe we got asked to attended a second incident in the forest where a young male had come of his bike and suffered lower leg injuries.

"These were treated by team members and then he was transported to the family vehicle for transport to hospital to get them checked over.

"We wish both casualties a speedy recovery and hopefully they will be back in the forest very soon."
