A police spokesman said that emergency services were called at about 8pm to the incident.

The bridge was closed off for about an hour due to police, fire crew and an ambulance blocking any vehicles from passing.

A spokesman said “We received reports of concern for a teenage girl who had jumped off the bridge into the river.

“It’s unclear if she made it out safely herself or was helped by fire service crew.
