Rescue teams searching for a missing swimmer have found a body, it's been confirmed.
A group of three bathers got into difficulty while swimming in the sea off Camber Sands, just over the Kent border in East Sussex, yesterday afternoon.
Two people were taken to hospital but a search was launched for a third person.
Today, it was confirmed that the body of a 19-year-old man was found last night.
The two other bathers remain in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
