The all weather lifeboat was launched to assist the inshore lifeboat to a report of a woman in distress in the water at the back of the King Alfred leisure centre at Hove Esplanade.

The inshore lifeboat crew proceeded to the woman and pulled her from the water and into the lifeboat. The all weather lifeboat stood by. She was taken ashore and handed over the care of ambulance paramedics and police.
