Attempt to swim around Island's coast underway

Money raised for MWT and Blue Marine Foundation

An attempt to swim around the coast of the Isle of Man gets underway this morning.

Lifelong outdoor swimming enthusiast, Mike Davis, will tackle the swim of up to 100 miles over a period of 20 days.

Mike, whose mother lives on the Island, will be raising money for the Manx Wildlife Trust and the Blue Marine Foundation.

Whilst he lives in London, Mike says he has roots here going back over 500 years and he's hoping to get to know the Island better.
