Hundreds of people dug out their swimsuits to take part in the Colchester Fire Swim.
Colchester fire station’s annual fundraiser, which has been running since 1981, was held at Leisure World on Saturday.
It raised cash for The Firefighter’s Charity and other local charities and groups.
More than 70 teams from fire stations, scout groups and local businesses spent one hour swimming lengths of the pool over 14 hours.
