Concerns for the welfare of a woman at Sandown Esplanade prompted a call out for HM Coastguard and the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service earlier this afternoon (Monday).

Emergency services were alerted to the situation at 12:05 with Coastguard Rescue Teams from Bembridge and Ventnor mobilised.

Upon arrival, it was established the casualty had been in the water.

@DavidFord you clearly haven’t suffered with a MH illness. As it isn’t something you can ‘get over’. These things take time, and sadly not enough people care to help.

Sometimes it can take years, it can be a very frightening experience and a lonely one.

I suffer from regular panic attacks for no reason, I can’t pinpoint the reasons, and I get them every day.

Seeing a GP is no use because they have no real understanding, so I just try to ride them out, but I hope this lady finds a way through her problems..
