Hundreds take part in Maldon mud race

Hundreds of people took part in the annual Maldon mud race in Essex this weekend.

It is a race across the River Blackwater at low tide which means wading through thick mud.

The event raises thousands of pounds for charity and leaves a lot of dirty washing, as Serena Sandhu found out.
