Race to rescue British woman injured in remote part of Russia
A 20 year old British woman has been injured in a remote part of Siberia. She was there studying the forest as a zoology student.
An alert beamed 3,700 miles around the world has sent rescuers to the aid of a British woman injured in the remote forests of eastern Russia.
The SOS signal was sent after the researcher fractured her leg falling from her horse while on a scientific expedition in the sparsely populated Kamchatka peninsula.
She is believed to be 20-year-old zoology student Kimberley Warren, part of a group examining the soil and forestry in Kamchatka Nature Park.
A Russian helicopter is trying to reach them but is being hampered by severe weather conditions.
