In two separate incidents in the Peak District, Derbyshire, mountain rescue teams were called into action to assist walkers in distress.
The first incident involved a walker who suffered a sprained ankle near the historic Bleaklow Bomber site.
The second, occurring just hours later, involved two walkers facing difficulty on the Kinder Scout path.
The first rescue operation unfolded around 13:15 GMT on Saturday when the Glossop Mountain Rescue Team, alongside paramedics from the North West Ambulance Service, responded to a call near the Bleaklow Bomber site.
The injured walker, who had sustained a sprained ankle, was carefully stretchered approximately two miles (3km) to the A57.
From there, they were transported to the hospital for further treatment.
Meanwhile, approximately eight miles to the south, the Kinder Mountain Rescue Team was dispatched at about 14:30 GMT to assist two walkers on the Kinder Scout path.
The pair had embarked on a route that took them up Red Brook onto the Kinder Edge path but found themselves in a precarious situation where they could neither ascend nor descend.
One of the walkers had aggravated a knee injury, further complicating their predicament.
In a fortunate turn of events, a passing group equipped for scrambling came across the stranded walkers.
Using their rope, they helped the pair reach a safer path.
The injured walker was administered pain relief, and both individuals were escorted along an easier route back to Edale Cross.
Subsequently, they were given a lift back to their vehicle at Bowden Bridge.
These incidents highlight the unpredictable nature of walking in the Peak District and the crucial role played by mountain rescue teams.
The swift response and expertise of these volunteer teams were instrumental in ensuring the safety and well-being of the walkers involved.
