Teenager on Ten Tors Training sustains ankle injury

We were called at 1900 today to assist a Ten Tors team in the Redlake area in Dartmoor National Park, in which one member had sustained an ankle injury. The casualty was being looked after by the party leaders near to Crossways, which despite being several kilometres from a road is accessible by Landrover via the disused Red Lake tramway.

This was a limited callout, involving 3 members. The casualty and 2 party leaders were evacuated to their vehicles and we returned to the Rescue Centre by 2300.

UPDATE: – The party leader commented on the experience

Thank you very much for your assistance yesterday evening on getting one of my team off the moor from the marker stone at SX 647 659,.

Your regular updates of where your members were to my two leaders was much appreciated. The injured team member was still unable to put weight on it the morning after the event and it has been confirmed by A and E as a damaged ligament….he is still hoping to do the event in 3 weeks time…..hopefully you won’t be needed again then!

Your helpfulness in getting the leaders back to their vehicles was also very much appreciated.
