TWO MPs were dangled from a platform off the Spinnaker Tower.

But it wasn’t a revolution in full flow – it was Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage and her husband Milton Keynes MP Mark Lancaster abseiling for charity.

The pair were raising cash for the MS Society and were two among a group from 
the Fareham and Gosport branch of the MS Society taking part.

The group raised nearly £10,000 for charity.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘It was a slightly nerve wracking experience as it’s very, very high. I must admit that I encouraged Mark to step over the edge first.

‘However, it’s all for a great cause that is close to our hearts.

‘The MS Society has been very supportive to one of our friends and the least we could do was support it in return.’

It comes after Ms Dinenage did a charity sky dive for the MS Society in 2012.
