A new search and rescue helicopter operating in the Peak District was used for the first time to help an injured paraglider.

The helicopter was scrambled to Mam Tor, Castleton, after a 49-year-old paraglider crash landed.

It was the first time the new Sikorsky S-92 helicopter, operated by Bristows and based at Humberside Airport, has been called into action since it replaced an aging RAF Sea King in April.
