A WOMAN was treated by emergency services for a broken ankle after slipping on a countryside walk.
Portsmouth and Hill Head Coastguard crews were called to Manor Country Park in Hamble after a woman broke her ankle and was stuck in the mud.
A spokesman from Solent Coastguard said: ‘We received a call at 12.25pm after a report of a woman with a broken ankle by the water’s edge at Manor Country Park in Hamble.
