Stuck walker on Offa’s Dyke

The team was called by North Wales Police to assist an older gentleman that found himself unable to continue walking along part of Offa’s Dyke near Llangollen.  Team members responded to the scene, with two team Landrovers.  The casualty was assessed by one of the team doctors and was able to walk with assistance until the route became very steep.  At this point he was put onto our stretcher and lowered using a rope system down to the fields below the path.  From here he was sledged in the stretcher to our Landrover which had been driven up through the fields.  Our Doctor assessed that he did not need to go to hospital, so we delivered him and his walking companion back to their vehicle.
