About 4,500 people took part in the traditional new year dip in the North Sea at Ostend this weekend.

“There was a great atmosphere and about 10,000 spectators were there to cheer them along,” said Vincent Drouard from Ostend tourist board.

The new year dip is a popular group activity, said Drouard, adding that some businesses use the event as a team-building exercise.
