eastbourne buzz news - Lifeboat nighttime

Reports of red flares being spotted off Eastbourne, sparked an all night search for the lifeboats.

Both vessels were launched at the request of Dover Coastguard at 11.05pm last night (26 June) and along with the coastguard rescue helicopter, the crews spent almost six hours scouring the sea.

With nothing found, they were stood down and returned to base just before 5am this morning.

Some of the volunteer crew then faced a full day in their daily jobs.
