DERBY Mountain Rescue Team were called out to Alsop Moor, near Tissington, where a 14-year-old boy was reported to have sustained a head injury after a fall.

A school group had been out for a walk and was descending a steep valley side to a path when the incident happened.

The boy had almost reached the path when he lost his footing and hit his head against a dry-stone wall. Due to the location and steepness of the route down to the casualty, mountain rescue were called in addition to a paramedic and ambulance.

Sixteen rescue volunteers arrived on scene and located the path where the casualty was.

The paramedic provided initial treatment before handing over to the rescue team to evacuate the casualty to the nearest road, where he was passed over to the care of an ambulance crew and taken to hospital for assessment.
