Thou­sands of out­door swim­mers from Shet­land to Corn­wall gath­ered yes­ter­day on freez­ing beaches, lochs, river­sides and li­dos to watch the sun rise on In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day and have a brac­ing dip to raise money for their lo­cal women’s char­i­ties.

Among them were dozens of women at Por­to­bello Beach, in sol­i­dar­ity with swims world­wide un­der the ban­ner #Iwdswim­rise. Dona­tions from swim­mers and sup­port­ers went to Women’s Aid and other women’s char­i­ties.

■ Win­ning num­bers in Satur­day night’s Lotto draw were 5, 29, 35, 36, 40 and 44, with bonus ball 42.
