Swimathon is a success again

Organisers hope more money than ever will be raised from an annual swimathon.

Twenty-seven swimmers swam more than 20 miles between them, including Alan Moorehead, Martin Hill, Charlie Brown, nine, who swam more than a mile, and Alana Swain, 10, who also swam a mile.

The Samaritans have thanked staff at Wellingborough pool for their support.
