Camber Sands Beach

Five dead bodies were pulled from the sea at Camber Sands beach near Rye in East Sussex on Wednesday. The men all got into difficulty in the water on what was the hottest day of the year. The first three bodies were recovered between 2pm and 3pm and it has since been confirmed that two more bodies have been found – one on the beach and one in the water. Reports that the deaths were linked to jellyfish have been dismissed.
