Bantham Swoosh river swim on the River Avon in Devon

The second Bantham Swoosh has taken places on the River Avon in Devon.

More than 600 swimmers took part in the 6km (3.7 miles) swim from Aveton Gifford to Bantham.

It is the second year the Outdoor Swimming Society has held the event.

The name Bantham Swoosh comes from the strong current which carries the swimmers along the final leg of the swim.
