A MOUNTAIN biker was taken to hospital after an accident in Rivington.
Bolton Mountain Rescue Team, which was taking part in an exercise in
the area, was alerted to the incident this afternoon.

accident near Lever Park.
He was taken by mountain rescuers to a waiting ambulance at Rivington
Hall Barn, which took him to the Royal Preston Hospital.
I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to
humans ("pure habitat"). Want to help? (I spent the previous 8
years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)
Please don't put a cell phone next to any part of your body that you are fond of!
