Avon and Somerset Police are trying to identify a good Samaritan who helped a woman to safety from a cliff edge.

A police officer who was handling the incident near Clifton Suspension Bridge says the young man climbed over the fence (of his own accord) and assisted with getting the woman to safety.

After the woman had been left in ambulance care, the police officer didn't get the man's name.

Police are now asking the man to come forward so they can thank him for his actions.
