Magician Dan Churchley from Southsea, will attempt to escape from a straitjacket whilst suspended 100 metres above sea level, upside down, beneath the Emirates Spinnaker Tower's glass floor Sky Walk. As well as captivating tower visitors, the stunt will also aim to raise money for CLIC Sargent, UKs leading cancer charity for children and young people.

Daring Portsmouth magician to escape straitjacket while hanging under Spinnaker Tower

Have your say

I was five or six years old. My sister and I woke to a dog in the front room.

We’d always wanted a pet and we thought our Christmas wish had been answered.

We found out later that our parents had taken it in the night before off the streets and the owner had been called to collect it.

We were devastated.

I do feel that the point of Christmas has gone.

It’s plastic, and as you get older, it’s magic when you were a child simply vanishes. It’s sad but true.
