A body has been recovered from the foot of cliffs at Beachy Head this morning (Wednesday February 26).

Coastguards and lifeboat crews were called into action at 7am after a handbag was discovered on the clifftop yesterday afternoon and a body located last night by the Sussex Police helicopter.

It was too dark for the body to be recovered last night so crews were on the scene at first light.
