A walker was stretchered from a Lake District fell after a medical emergency.
Rescuers said the man developed what they described as a sudden and potentially serious medical condition while ascending Walla Crag with another man.
Rescue Team was alerted at 9.10am on Sunday and went to the man’s aid.
A team spokesperson said: “On arrival Keswick team medics assessed the casualty and provided some strong pain relief before he was stretchered down to Rakefoot Farm and a waiting ambulance.
“He was then taken to Carlisle hospital for further checks.”
The incident lasted an hour-and-a-half and involved 16 Keswick MRT volunteers.
