Bay swim cancelled

A ONE mile open water swim due to take place in Morecambe Bay on Sunday was cancelled due to the weather.

Swimmers gathered at Morecambe Yacht Club for the start of the swim at 11am on Sunday but then moved to a more sheltered part of the bay to swim.

However, due to the weather conditions, the swim was cancelled.

It would have been the first time since the 1950s that competitive open water swimming had taken place in Morecambe.

No dates have yet been released for the postponed swim to take place again.
