Meet the North East woman with new sense of 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.
