LIFEBOAT volunteers were called out to help with an early-morning search for a man reported to be in the sea up to his waist.
The D Class lifeboat was launched at 1.39am after reports of a man in the water between Martello Bay and Holland-on-Sea.
Crews searched the shoreline with the help of coastguards and the Sea King rescue chopper.
Police eventually found the man inshore and the lifeboat crew was stood down at 2.20am.
