A woman has died after falling from a cliffside in Tayside despite efforts by rescue teams to save her.
Emergency services were deployed in significant numbers to Victoria Park in Arbroath at around 7.40pm last night.
They responded to a call regarding a person who was seen falling from the cliffs in the town.
Lifeboats sent to the scene rescued the woman at the foot of the cliffs and transferred her to the RNLI lifeboat station at the harbour.
An ambulance then rushed her to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.
However, police have now confirmed the woman has died of injuries sustained in the fall, despite rescuers’ best efforts.
A spokesman for Tayside Division said: “A woman who fell from Arbroath Cliffs yesterday evening has since died.”
