Whitby Lions' Annual Boxing Day Dip has taken place, attracting nearly 200 dippers and thousands of onlookers and has been hailed a huge success.

Many dippers were in fancy dress, including a large group dressed as sharks. Others were dressed in festive outfits whilst some weren't wearing very much at all!

Whilst many participants only dipped their toes in the water for a few seconds, some hardy ones fully submerged themselves and enjoyed a swim for several minutes.

RNLI Crew were on hand to keep everyone safe and thousands watched from the harbour wall and beach. 

Many were raising money for charity with 80% going to the dippers choice and 20% being used by Whitby Lions in the local area.

Well done to all who took part from all of us here at Yorkshire Coast Radio. You all din Fin-Tastic!
