A man has been rescued from the water at Seaham Harbour.

Sunderland RNLI volunteers were paged by HM Coastguard shortly before 8pm this evening.

But as the crew were launching the Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat, they were notified that police had recovered the man from the water and were stood down.
