Camber Sands Victims Named Locally

    Tributes are being paid to the five London men who died at Camber Sands in Sussex on Wednesday.

    Officials say the men fell into deep channels of water between sand which had been made deeper by floods days earlier.

    22-year-old, Nirtharsan Ravi.

    23-year-old, Inthushan Sriskantharasa.

    Brothers, 22-year-old Kobi Nathan and 19-year-old Ken Nathan.
