A mountain biker was rushed to hospital by air ambulance after a nasty crash on moorland near Birk Brow.

The 49-year-old woman had been riding with her husband when she fell, suffering "quite severe" injures on Sunday.

Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team was sent to the scene in 4X4 vehicles - but had to trek two kilometres across farm tracks and fields to find the casualty.

They were accompanied by paramedics from the North East Ambulance Service.

The injured woman was stabilised and taken around 300 metres to the waiting Great North Air Ambulance which flew her to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

A total of 19 team members were involved in this incident that lasted two hours.

A spokesperson for Cleveland Mountain Rescue team said: "This was a busy weekend for the mountain rescue volunteers and with two seriously injured patients to deal with in remote locations the weekend emphasized our close working relationships with the ambulance and air ambulance services."
