WITH VIDEO: Two sailors were rescued after their yacht crashed into the Palace Pier last night after drifting in the rough seas at around 9pm.

Shoreham Lifeboat was called at 9.06pm to reports of a vessel in distress just east of the pier and launched its all weather lifeboat.

A tow line was established and the boat was then safely towed to Shoreham Harbour. The pier was undamaged.
