Reports from eyewitnesses in the area suggested that someone had fallen down a cliff, although this has not been confirmed by the relevant agencies as yet.

A statement from North East Wales Search and Rescue regarding the incident read: "At 8:20pm on Tuesday we were called to assist at a multi agency incident in Denbigh.
