Meet the North East woman with new sense of purpose thanks to sea swimming

Katie has found new purpose thanks to sea swimming.

Earlier this year we brought you the story of the Seaham Sea Swimmers, a group of people using the North Sea to improve their mental and physical health.

One of them,  Katie Wotton, has lipoedema, a medical condition which causes an abnormal build-up of fat in the legs and arms. 

Since filming with us Katie has started raising awareness of the condition with an online blog.

She says the sea has given her a new sense of purpose.
