Police said officers were called to reports of a body, however it was confirmed by coastguard manager Steve Dann to be a false alarm.

A spokesperson for Sussex Police said, “Police were called to reports of a body at the foot of Beachy Head, but the coastguard confirmed it was not a body and we were stood down.”
