Lifeboats from Shoreham and Brighton have saved a man who had come into difficulty in the water.

Teams from the two RNLI stations scrambled to reports of a man in difficulty in Hove this morning, according to a tweet from Shoreham RNLI.

The Coastguard search team quickly located the man, said the tweet, and a rescue swimmer brought the casualty back to shore.

Once ashore, he was treated by South East Coast Ambulance Service, said the tweet.
