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.
Emergency services were called to the Rye Beach in East Sussex at 2pm and within six hours had recovered five bodies from the water.
Police have yet to formally identify the victims although the men have been named locally as:
22-year-old, Nirtharsan Ravi.
23-year-old, Inthushan Sriskantharasa.
Brothers, 22-year-old Kobi Nathan and 19-year-old Ken Nathan.
27-year-old, Kurushanth Srithavarajah.
