The Budleigh Salterton Christmas swim saw many people take the plunge.

The unseasonably warm weather saw a bumper number of swimmers this year at Budleigh’s Christmas Day swim.

At 10.30am, the brave waders, many of whom were dressed in Santa outfits and other crazy costumes, raced across the beach pebbles at Steamer Steps and jumped in to the sea.
