Boy 'swept away' into the sea

A 14-year-old boy who got into difficulties in the sea at Newhaven on Sunday afternoon has still not been found. Search and Rescue teams will make a decision this morning on whether to continue their efforts.

We witnessed the tragic power of the sea at Newhaven yesterday and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the young lad who is sadly still missing. I don't want to see that repeated."

– Superintendent Grenville Wilson
