PICTURE SPECIAL: Spot yourself at a South Shields Boxing Day Dip

Hundreds of hardy fundraisers braved the icy North Sea at South Shields for charity in a series of Boxing Day Dips.

A host of good causes benefited as people donned fancy dress outfits and ran into the water in three separate dips - though a fourth, in aid of St Clare's Hospice at Jarrow, was cancelled for safety reasons.

Hundreds of hardy dippers took to the icy water at South Shields - but it was all for good causes.
