Officers were called to Battery Gardens at the top of Lake Hill at shortly before 15:30, where a young woman was discovered to be on the wrong side of the railings.
Thankfully, Police have managed to talk to the woman and she has now been led to safety.
Ventnor Coastguard Rescue Team are also in attendance at the scene.
The appropriate support has been arranged.
Help is at hand when you need it – you don’t have to be suicidal to get in touch.
