Who bares wins in record dip in the nip bid

Some 400 people stripped naked and plunged into the sea in an attempt to break the world record for the biggest ever skinny dip.

Swimmers came from all over the country to brave the chilly waters of the Gower Peninsula in Wales.

The existing record is believed to be 250 naked bathers in one location, and organisers plan to submit their event to Guinness World Records in a bid to steal the title. The stunt raised money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.
