Eastbourne RNLI was called out twice this morning with a body sadly recovered from Beachy Head.

Here’s the RNLI: “Our volunteer crew were paged at 08.40 hrs today Thursday 4th March.

They were requested to launch the All Weather Lifeboat and the Inshore Lifeboat to assist local Coastguards and the Coastguard Rescue Helicopter with a search for 2 persons reported missing.

The Inshore Lifeboat was then launched again at 10.50 hrs to another incident where it provided safety cover for the Coastguard Rescue Helicopter during the recovery of a casualty.”
