‘Not all heroes wear capes, some of them don’t even wear bikini tops’

A woman from Cornwall is being hailed a hero after saving a family from drowning … while topless.
As one of Jessica Layton’s friends put it, “not all heroes wear capes, some of them don’t even wear bikini tops”.
The 28-year-old from Penzance was sunbathing on naturist beach Pedn Vounder, near Porthcurno, yesterday (Tuesday, June 23) when the drama happened.
She told Cornwall Live: “It was just after 3pm and the tide was coming in. I decided to go for a final dip before going home.”
“I was topless in the sea when I saw two young women struggling to swim near rocks. Another member of the family ran in to help them and she started struggling too.
