Gail Rickett seems to have the magic touch when it comes to teaching children how to swim.
Her website makes a bold claim - that she can teach 99 % of all children aged 5 and above to be able to swim between 10 and 200m in just four hours.
Some of the Southport swim instructor's biggest success stories include Jodie swam a mile aged just four, and five-year-old Leah who swam five miles after just 18 months of lessons.
Parents of her pupils have nicknamed her "The Water Whisperer".
