Hundreds of swimmers have braved the chilly waters on the Cornish coast, for the New Year's Day dips.

Bathers lined up in Looe and Newquay to see in 2019 with a cold wake-up call.

Both raised money for charity, with donations for CLIC Sargent in Newquay and over £1300 for Looe Lifeboat Station.

Take a look at some of the highlights in pictures...

What an impressive turn-out at Looe!
