A woman climbed out onto the roof of a hospital.
Sussex Police and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were called to Eastbourne District Hospital after a woman in her forties was seen on the 100ft high roof above the cash office at around 2.30pm.
A spokesman for Sussex Police said: "It is understood the woman was a patient at the hospital."
She came down of her own accord about 25 minutes later and is now in the care of hospital staff.
Nobody was hurt and there was no damage.
