Both the all weather and inshore lifeboats were called to a report of a woman who had gone into the water off Worthing. The lifeboats were joined in the search by the Coastguard helicopter and the Sussex Police helicopter co-ordinated by Solent coastguard. The lifeboats searched close inshore between Splashpoint and Goring in wind and driving rain which caused poor visibility. The coastguard called off the search after two hours after nothing was found. The lifeboats returned to station.
