Two soldiers who are based in the Midlands, have abseiled down Europe's largest building in London, for charity.

Luke Darlington who is 23, from Herefordshire and Stephen Hall, 26, from Shrewsbury were both injured in Afghanistan and descended the Shard skyscraper from the 87th floor.

The pair were doing the dare devil stunt for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, a charity that they believe will eventually help them once they are discharged from the forces.

They were among 40 others to do it, along with the Duke of York.
