A WOMAN helped by mountain rescuers after falling near Entwistle Reservoir has thanked her heroes.

Bolton Mountain Rescue Team was called to help the 60-year-old who had fallen on the path next to the beauty spot and injured her leg on Saturday.

In a message to the team, she said: “I just want to say many thanks for your help on that day, which is not one I would like to repeat.

“My ankle, so they tell me, isn’t broken but I am on crutches and unable to walk at the moment, so I would have been there for an awful lot longer if your team had not come to my assistance.

“They were very efficient and kept me calm and well supplied with warm covering until I got to the hospital.”
