One eyewitness told The Star two members of the public attended to the woman before paramedics arrived.

The woman, in her 40s, was transported to the Northern General Hospital a short time afterwards.

Unconfirmed reports suggested the woman had taken synthetic cannabis, more commonly known as Spice.

Three community support officers were seen to move on two males slumped on steps close by to the incident.

Just 30 minutes earlier, officers were also called to Haymarket to reports a 60-year-old man had collapsed on the pavement after taking Spice.

An ambulance was called but it was stood down a short time later after the man came around.
