A search has been called off at Camber Sands in East Sussex, England after a missing swimmer was found safe and well.

The coastguard, police and RNLI crews were all involved in the operation. 

Five friends died at the beach on Wednesday, prompting authorities to deploy lifeguards on the normally unpatrolled seafront over the bank holiday weekend in England.

Camber Sands is known for its wide, flat beach and is understood to have a number of sand bars which can become cut off when the tide comes in.
