The South Shields Volunteer Life Brigade was first called out to an incident in the Marsden area at around 4.40pm yesterday, which was handled with the Sunderland Coastguard Rescue Team.

The teams responded to a report of a despondent woman in the area.

After a short period of time, the volunteer life brigade said, the woman was persuaded to return to the correct side of the barrier.

A number of emergency service teams and police were called out to the two incidents.

However, as police officers were monitoring her and were about to let her leave in her car, her situation reportedly changed and an ambulance was requested. Life brigade team members remained with her until she left the area.

Then, at 12.40am, both teams attended a multi-agency incident at Frenchmans Bay. The incident was resolved successfully after about one hour at the scene, according to the volunteer life brigade.

More details to follow.
