MOUNTAIN rescuers and an air ambulance were deployed twice in two days after a motorcyclist and a walker were injured in separate incidents in North Yorkshire.

Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team said it was first called out on Saturday to reports that a woman had suffered an ankle injury while crossing a stream near Rudland House, Fadmoor, and was unable to get herself out of the water.

It said the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service were also called to the scene.

After assessment and treatment on site, the woman was carried to a waiting ambulance at the road side.

The team was deployed again after a young motorcyclist was injured when he fell from his motorbike at an organised motor cycle event on Sunday in Spaunton Quarry, near Kirkbymoorside.

It said an air ambulance was on the scene above the quarry and the young man was receiving treatment, but the team's equipment and skills in the form of a bell stretcher and troops were requested to help carry him to a waiting ambulance.
