A swimmer died in the sea in Brighton today after getting into difficulties.
He went missing just after 2pm and was washed ashore just before 5.30pm.
Desperate attempts were made to resuscitate the 24-year-old man who was believed to have come to Brighton from London with friends.
He was reported to have been one of four people who went into the sea together but he went under and didn’t come back up.
He went missing between the piers and was washed ashore on a beach near the bottom of West Street where the attempts were made to revive him.
A spokesman for the RNLI said: “There was quite an intense and extensive search between the piers.”
