More than a hundred brave souls have taken a New Year's Day dip in the chilly waters of the North Sea off Norfolk to raise cash for Sheringham lifeboat.

The swimmers took to the water at 1am in support of the RNLI.

Sheringham on the north Norfolk coast near Cromer has had a lifeboat station for nearly 170 years. It was the first station to receive a B class Atlantic 75 lifeboat.
