A teenager on a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition in the Peak District was airlifted to the Northern General Hospital after seriously injuring her spine in a fall on Sunday.

The 18-year-old tumbled down steep-sided Blackden Brook on the northern edge of Kinder Scout on Sunday night. Edale Mountain Rescue Team was alerted after one of her companions went down the hill to get a mobile phone signal and call for help.
