A mountain rescue team were called out to Clowbridge Reservoir after a walker suffered a leg injury.

The incident happened on Wednesday at around 9pm (November 1) when an individual had been out with their partner walking their new rescue dog just outside Burnley.

It appears the dog had got a little over-excited and ran into the owner.

A Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team spokesperson said: “The casualty was located and assessed by team members; by which point understandably getting cold, so wrapped in one of our casualty bags and provided with a heated warming blanket also. 

“Once checks made, they were provided with pain relief, and then the leg splinted to minimise movement during transport. 

“The casualty was then placed into the casualty bag on the Bell stretcher, before being conveyed back to the car park using the wheel.

"Once there the casualty handed over to the awaiting ambulance crew and at this time the team then stood down and returned to base.”
