Penrith Mountain Rescue Team was called to help evacuate an injured mountain biker to hospital.

The team was called to Catterlen, north west of Penrith, after a 55-year-old man had fallen off his mountain bike, injuring his shoulder.

A North West Ambulance Service paramedic was able to reach the man, but needed help from the mountain rescue team to evacuate him to the waiting ambulance. The man was stretchered to the ambulance, and took to the Cumberland Infirmary for treatment.
