A car left the road and plunged off cliffs into the sea off the Gower coast.

The RNLI said it had sent a lifeboat to Limeslade Bay after the Coastguard was alerted at about 06:00 BST on Tuesday.

When rescuers arrived they had "a small amount of debris" to help them find where the vehicle was.

South Wales Police said a 37-year-old woman was assisted from the sea and detained under the Mental Health Act. She was taken to Morriston hospital.
