The Shoreham lifeboat was launched to a report of a man on board a vessel who was suffering from chest pains on Friday (July 29).

The 36ft yacht with 10 people on board was three miles south west of Shoreham Harbour when it made the call at around 7.35pm.

Once on scene, the Y-boat was launched from the all weather lifeboat with two crew members on board who were placed on the yacht to assess the man.

He was given oxygen and the yacht was escorted to the entrance of the harbour.

The man was then transferred to the lifeboat and taken back to the boathouse where a waiting ambulance crew met him.

He was taken to hospital to be checked over and later discharged the following morning.
