The Air Ambulance was called to Southwater yesterday afternoon (Monday May 23).

Two ambulances along with members of the Hazard Area Response Team (HART) were also sent to the incident near Great Lime Kiln.

A spokesman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said paramedics received a call at around 3.20pm that a woman was suffering from breathing problems near a lake in the area.

HART was called to assist crews as the woman, who was in her 40s, was stuck along a footpath which was not easily accessible for paramedics, the spokesman added.

She was treated at the scene before being taken to Worthing Hospital by ambulance for further treatment.
