The spokeswoman said the Cowgate is likely to be closed off to traffic and pedestrians for a while.

Police were unable to provide details of the woman's condition at this stage.

Edinburgh Travel News has tweeted that, due to the Cowgate closure, there are queues on Chambers Street, George IV Bridge, Guthrie Street and Grassmarket.

It comes just days after a man died after falling from height onto East Market Street.

It is believed the man had fallen from the balcony at the top of the Scotsman Steps.

Police taped off the street on either side of North Bridge, with several police cars and and ambulance attending.
