A Lincolnshire woman who says she has a phobia of the sea, is conquering her fear and planning to to swim the English Channel for charity.

Zoe Fielding, who will be raising money for the Grantham Additional Needs Foundation, says she has suffered panic attacks when in the sea.

"I can't breathe, I can't see, it is really hard to manage," said Ms Fielding. "It's a massive, massive deal."

The Channel swim will take place on 16 July, weather conditions permitting.
