Brave and hardy souls took part in this year's Lee Dam swim at Todmorden.

Chris Kiddey (who has heroically taken part himself in the past) reports.
Zoe said she was in immense pain following the collision but firefighter Leon Dentico, from Leeds Red Watch, delivered one-to-one casualty care and kept her calm throughout whilst other crew members worked on the car and other casualties.
Zoe said: “When Leon got there I was petrified. Leon was talking to me explaining things. He said 'you are going to be alright' and that calmed me down.
“It?s crazy to see them again. I feel lucky that I have met them and said thanks because it's quite rare for that to happen. I never thought something like this would happen to me. It's shown me how good our emergency services are."
A 21-year-old woman left with multiple injuries after an horrific crash has been reunited with the fire crew that came to her aid and pulled her from the wreckage.
Zoe Turner's escape was made all the more miraculous as medics credited the very tight red dress she was wearing for a night out with helping to protect her from sustaining even more fractures.
Zoe, a psychology graduate from Wakefield, was the front seat passenger in a taxi involved in a crash on December 14th in Leeds. She was left with multiple injuries including a fracture to her lower spine, left side of her pelvis and shoulder. She also broke her sternum.
Zoe was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where medics told her that her tight red dress had acted as a corset and prevented her injuries from being a lot worse.
The incident was attended by an engine from Leeds and Gipton as well as the Technical Rescue Unit and today Zoe was reunited with the “caring and professional” firefighters from the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, who were on the scene within minutes.
Zoe said: “I know the story is about the dress but the dress is nothing compared to what they [the firefighters] did. In reality it's these guys that save lives. They really cared. They were very professional and I was really impressed with how they dealt with the incident.”
