New Year's Day dip in Fleetwood

Fleetwood's hardy New Year's Day dippers in all their glory: Picture special

In previous years the tide had seen the dippers getting up at the crack of dawn, but this year tide conditions warranted a later start of 1.30pm.

The after-effects of late night New Year's parties didn't stop this huge crowd yesterday, as around 200 people braved the biting waters of the Irish Sea in Fleetwood.
