Members of a West Cumbrian running club braved biting winds and chilly water for a New Year's Day dip in the sea at St Bees.

Dozens of runners from St Bees Triers took to the water at midday to raise funds for the local RNLI lifeboat station.

The New Year's Day plunge is an annual tradition for the club.
