The all weather lifeboat was launched to assist the inshore lifeboat with a search for a report of a man who was believed to have gone into the water off Worthing Pier in rough sea conditions.

The lifeboats were joined by the coastguard helicopter and mobile coastguard teams from Shoreham and Littlehampton spent an hour and 30 minutes carrying out an extensive air and sea search east and west of the pier. Nothing was found and the lifeboats were stood down. The call was good intent.
