Two islanders took advantage of the calm sea conditions yesterday and attempted to swim around Bishop Rock Lighthouse.

Carmen Stevens & Angela Jenkins had made an earlier attempt at this challenging swim but the tide beat them and held them in one spot for 20 minutes before they were forced to give up.

But this time they made it and the swim was successful.

They even had a workman cheering them on from the top of the lighthouse!
