A Sheffield runner was taken to hospital with a suspected leg fracture after falling in a fell race in Edale.

He was running on Kinder Scout when he lost his footing on a rocky section of path at the top of Grindslow Knoll.

Members of Edale Mountain Rescue Team, who were fundraising in Edale at the time, administered pain relief and carried the runner on a stretcher to an ambulance parked two kilometres away.

He was then taken to hospital.
