Kelly Fiddy, a 31-year-old mum-of-two, was among a group that took to the sky above London to abseil down the ArcelorMittal Orbit to raise vital funds for Canine Partners.

She said: '˜The abseil was incredible and right up my street as I'm not scared of heights and I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie.

'˜The views were exceptional and it was so easy to get the hang of abseiling so I would do it again in a heartbeat.'
