More swimmers than ever braved the cold at Porthcawl to take part in the annual Christmas morning swim.

Organisers say over 1000 bathers took the plunge and over 2,000 spectators were there to cheer them on.

Swim Chairman, Nicola Willis says, ‘As a small committee we are delighted the way we have been supported once again this year. Our beneficiaries this year will be local charities and organisations.”
