A spokesman said that as the team arrived on scene the two people had managed to effect a self rescue and did not need any further assistance.

They added: “However due to the May Day celebrations the West Hill area was very busy and with many people celebrating close to the edge of the cliffs we stayed on scene for a short period of time to give appropriate safety advice.

“We were then stood down and returned to station.”
