People are being invited along to attempt to break the World Record for the most people taking part in a skinny dip at Druridge Bay in Northumberland.

North East paramedic Jackie Higgingson's trying to break the record, after taking part in one herself at Rhossilil Bay in Wales last year.

Jackie, from Whitburn, needs more than 413 people to take off their clothes and go for a naked swim in the North Sea at sunrise on Saturday 22nd September.

The event will raise money for mental health charity MIND - with participants asked to pay a £10 registration fee

They're hoping to raise more £2,000 for the charity.

People interested in taking part will be asked to gather on the beach before sunrise and get at least waist deep in the chilly north sea along with hundreds of others.
