Emergency services were concerned for the welfare of a female described as ‘despondent’ who was on the Hawarden Railway Bridge at Shotton.
The police helicopter was also dispatched to the scene however, police quickly dealt with the situation and led the women to safety.
Meanwhile earlier in the day North East Wales Search and Rescue were called upon to assist with a male walker on Moel Famau who was suffering a leg injury.
Luckily for the injured man the search and rescue team were able to drive Landrovers up to the summit of Moel Famau and retrieve the injured male.
The SAR team posted a video on Facebook showing the team at the summit, administering first aid, before loading the male onto a stretcher and into a waiting Land Rover to then make a slow and careful descent down to the bottom, meeting Welsh Ambulance Service to hand the casualty over.
