It was a busy night for the Shoreham Lifeboat, which was tasked with looking for three missing teenagers on a bodyboard east of Shoreham yesterday evening.

The inshore lifeboat was afloat on an exercise when it was called to assist, a spokesman said.

The three teens were quickly located safely ashore.

Just 20 minutes later, a kitesurfer was found struggling to self rescue off Shoreham Beach and was taken back to shore by the crew, the spokesman said.
