Deeply Dippy

Scores of swimmers took the plunge at the regular annual New Years day dip in Saltburn. As the chill winds swept in from the sea they stripped off - or paraded dressed in fantastic costumes before taking to the waters.
At Saltburn the main support was for the the Saltburn Animal Rescue Association (SARA), which has acquired a new site for its work with strays and abandoned pets.
Association chairwoman, Ann Prosser, said a string of dogs and cats had been taken in over the Christmas period.
"We hope to raise between £500-£600 from the dip," she said.
"We are grateful for all those who turned up to take part plus the volunteers and all those who help - dog walkers, kennel cleaners, everyone."
