English sea swimmer finds bathing water as warm as Caribbean near Shoreham


John Kapp claims to have found a little piece of the Caribbean off the Sussex coast, about the size of a football pitch and above a foot deep, where he has been swimming for up to three-quarters of an hour in just his swimming trunks in what should be icy waters. He says the water there is about 20ºC (68ºC), and the reason for it being so hot is the nearby Shoreham power station. Read The Argus.
