On Friday, August 18, Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team were called out to the Ystradfellte waterfalls area to assist a 39-year-old woman with a suspected fractured ankle.

The walker had slipped and turned on her ankle while out walking with her family.

Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust and Heddlu Dyfed-Powys Police requested the rescue team to respond to the woman's injury and they soon located her and her family.

Competing with the weather conditions that Storm Betty was providing, the casualty's family were led out to the rescue team's control point to stop them from getting colder and wetter than they already were.

The casualty was sheltered from the poor weather by team members and treated by the Casualty Care medic.

She received pain relief and had her leg supported in a vacuum splint before being stretchered to an awaiting ambulance, through the help of Western Beacons Mountain Rescue Team.

A spokesperson for Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team said: "Much welcomed support and additional pairs of hands for the stretcher evacuation came from our neighbours Western Beacons MRT, thanks for that guys.

"We wish the casualty well and hope that it doesn’t distract too much from their visit to the area."
