Two men missing in rough seas off Brighton

Two men are missing at sea off the coast of Brighton after getting into trouble in severe weather, the Coastguard has said.

They were among four men who had gone into the water at the popular seaside resort in the early hours of this morning.

Two men managed to get back to shore and called the Coastguard just after 1am this morning telling them that two of their companions are missing. Coastguard and lifeboat teams are looking for the men, but the severe wind is hampering search efforts.

Coastguard rescue teams from nearby Shoreham and Newhaven and the Shoreham all weather lifeboat are searching the waters for the pair.
