A lifeboat was launched from Hastings last night to reports of three girls in the water near the Pier - it turned out they were chasing Pokemon in the sea.

The girls were playing the popular game Pokemon Go and walked, fully-clothed, into water in a red-flag warning zone.

The caller was concerned as the sea was quite rough and the girls appeared to be fully clothed.

Officers attended and established that the girls were looking for Pokemon. They were advised not to go into the water.

The lifeboat was stood down when it was established the trio were not in trouble.

Pokemon Go is an ‘augmented reality’ game that requires players to use their smartphone to collect Pokemon characters from different locations.
