Brighton pier: Boy, 9, found during storm placed 'in temporary care'
A nine-year-old boy found under Brighton pier during a storm has been placed into temporary foster care.
Brighton Beach Patrol found the child at 02:00 BST on Saturday as the coast was hit by rain and high winds.
A 30-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, both from London, arrested on suspicion of child neglect have been released on conditional bail, Sussex Police said.
Brighton & Hove City Council said the boy's family did not live locally.
Sussex Police said the boy - who was initially taken into the force's protection - was now in the care of relatives.
The council spokesperson said: "We acted immediately and effectively to secure safe temporary foster accommodation for the child to allow longer-term arrangements for the child's welfare to be made."
