Comedian helps injured walker

Comedian Ed Byrne has helped an injured hillwalker in the Cairngorms.
Byrne was at the end of a two-day walking trip with adventure and outdoor writer Phoebe Smith when they came across Josh Bratchley on Tuesday.
Mr Bratchley twisted a knee when his right leg went through a snow drift on his way to the remote Corrour Bothy.
Byrne gave him his walking poles and accompanied him to another bothy. Mr Bratchley, an experienced mountaineer, said he was grateful for the help.
Irish stand-up comedian Byrne and Ms Smith, author of The Book of the Bothy, were in the Cairngorms for an article Byrne is writing for a forthcoming issue of The Great Outdoors Magazine.
