NORTHAM stuntman and entertainer Merlin Cadogan will be braving the waters at Clovelly next week for his modern day King Canute performance.
Merlin, 35, will be chained into his throne on the beach at 3pm a week today (Tuesday) and will stay there until 3pm on Friday. During his three-day ordeal he will be covered by the incoming tides twice a day.
Despite wearing scuba equipment so he can breathe while under water, Merlin will have to deal with problems such as sleep deprivation, the cold and exhaustion during his unique charity feat.
His death-defying stunt will raise funds for the Children's Hospice South West.

"It will be a real ordeal and I hope a lot of people will come and support me, cheer me on and help keep me going," said Merlin.
