The Brighton RNLI Lifeboat was launched yesterday after a pile of clothes was found on the beach in between the piers.
A shoreline search was quickly carried out from the marina to the pier and around the pier.
In liaison with Solent Coastguard, Shoreham ALB and other units, an extensive search was carried out between Brighton Marina and the West pier, with nothing found. The lifeboats were stood down at 2.01pm.
Jade Cohen volunteer crew of Brighton Lifeboat said “Calls of this nature are not uncommon especially during these sunny months, when the beaches start to become busier.”
