Skydivers take the plunge and raise thousands

A daring bunch of fundraisers plunged 10,000ft and raised £6,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.
The 13 daredevils took part in the Bury St Edmunds-based hospice's annual skydive day at Beccles Airfield.
They beat last year's total of £5,680 and hospice events fundraiser Lizzie Cross said: "I am so proud that our skydivers have managed to raise a total of £6,000 between them.
"Completing a skydive is definitely a bucket list challenge and I am so pleased that so many chose to combine this with raising funds for the hospice.
"Well done to everyone who took part, and of course everyone who supported our skydivers."
