A man was taken to hospital by the ambulance service, but sadly later died

Eastbourne Lifeboat was paged Sunday Morning at 9.15am following a request from Her Majesty’s Coastguard to launch the All-Weather Lifeboat. Volunteers onboard the boat worked alongside local Coastguards and the Coastguard Rescue Helicopter with a search for a person reported to be in the water off Eastbourne Seafront.

A Sussex Police spokesperson said, “A man was taken to hospital by the ambulance service, but sadly later died.

“His next of kin have been informed.”
