With the tank plunged into darkness, alarms sounding, and wind and waves pounding at her, Olympian swimmer Hannah Miley was forced to face her greatest fear.

Driving her to overcome her “huge” fears, however, was the prospect of raising money for an Aberdeen-based still birth charity that is close to her heart.
