Here’s a unique view of one of Norfolk’s most bracing festive traditions.
This video put together by Chris Taylor Photo using shots from a drone camera shows hundreds of people plunging into the chilly water of the North Sea off Cromer.
The brave souls, many who had donned fancy dress including as Robin Hood, a unicorn and Santa Claus, waded into the sea as part of Cromer’s Boxing Day Dip, one of several such events held around the region as a kind of post-Christmas detox from the cosy indoors and excess of food.
Cromer’s dip, the 30th to take place in the town, was organised by the North Norfolk Beach Runners and raised money for the Norwich and central Norfolk branch of mental health charity Mind.
