Three people pulled from the water at Camber Sands

At about 2.15pm today (Wednesday 24 August) the UK Coastguard received a report that three people required urgent medical assistance after being pulled from the water at Camber Sands.

UK Coastguard search and rescue helicopters based Lydd and Lee on Solent were immediately sent to the area, along with Dungeness, Rye Bay an Hastings Coastguard Rescue Teams and Rye Harbour RNLI lifeboat.  There is also a Senior Coastal Operations Officer on scene.

Sussex Police, South East Coast Ambulance Service and Rother District Council also attended the incident. 

Sadly, all three men have now been confirmed deceased.  Our thoughts are with their families at this sad time.
