Have your say

DAREDEVILS are wanted to brave the dizzying heights of the Spinnaker Tower to raise money for an autism charity.

The Hampshire Autistic Society is looking for people to descend the tower on August 26.

The society has a dedicated day where thrill-seekers will be able to abseil from a 100m platform, taking in the views of Portsmouth as they climb down the tower.

It costs £50 to register and the charity asks 
that people try to raise a minimum of £200 sponsorship.
