In a Facebook post detailing the incident, the Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team said: "After the casualty was treated on-scene by the team doctor, he was packaged and prepared for a very long and hot stretcher carry to the ambulance.

"After an initial hand over hand back up the crag to the top, the wheel was attached to the stretcher and the long walk commenced to Foulstone Delf where the ambulance crew managed to get their vehicle.

"Another great example of our Peak District teams working together to get the job done."
