EIGHT members of Oldham Mountain Rescue Team were called out to help rescue an injured woman at Pots and Pans, Greenfield on Saturday.

The woman had slipped and sustained a lower leg injury while descending the well-known local landmark.

Mountain rescue responded after establishing the location with a phone call to her partner and arrived at the same time as North West Ambulance Service paramedics.

The injury was splintered with OMRT vacuum splits and the casualty carried to the ambulance by stretcher in an operation lasting under an hour.
