A 95mph mile-long zoom with a view, 700ft in the air

A grandfather of six has become the first to experience the longest zip wire in the northern hemisphere which can reach speeds of 95mph.

68-year-old Robert Davies lives close to the new attraction in Bethesda in north Wales. He described whizzing down the zip wire suspended 700ft in the air as "one of the most amazing things I've ever done".
