PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Hundreds of people started the longest day of the year with a splash - by turning out for a solstice sunrise swim in an outdoor pool. Around 400 early risers enjoyed a bracing early morning dip in the outdoor pool of the Ilkley Lido in West Yorkshire to celebrate the arrival of summer. Water-lovers began gathering at around 4.45am to enjoy the extra hours of sunlight this morning. Despite it being a cool eight degrees outside, the water was a 17 degrees for fans of the Lido who missed out on last year's solstice swim as it was closed for renovations. The council-run venue boasts wonderful views across Ilkley Moor, which lent itself to a beautiful sunrise setting.
