    UK - Five dead in seaside tragedy at Camber Sands

    Guardian:

    Five people dead after being pulled from sea at Camber Sands

    Five men died after being pulled from the sea and a sixth person is thought to be missing in a British seaside tragedy that took place on the hottest day of the year so far.

    Beachgoers and emergency services tried to save three of the men after they got into difficulties in the water at Camber Sands near Rye, East Sussex, at around 2.15pm on Wednesday. They were pulled from the sea within 20 minutes but died.

    Two more bodies were found at around 8pm as the tide receded and the RNLI and coastguard were searching the sea and shoreline for another person thought to be missing. The deaths bring the toll to 12 in less than a week as people head for the coast at the end of the school holidays.

    This is terrible, apparently the lads were playing football (as in soccer) on a sandbank. Two got into trouble and 3 tried to save them and they all got swept away by a current. Any news on the 6th?

    Nothing thus far, just phrases ("legs sucked in like quicksand") and compound nouns ("rip tide"). From London, apparently.
