A student had a lucky escape after he lost control of his parachute on his first ever jump and landed in a tree.
Liam Byrne's parachutes became entangled before he landed in Shotton Colliery, County Durham.
The 18-year-old, who narrowly avoided landing on a church, was stuck for about half an hour before being rescued by firefighters.
"It was a bit scary, I just made sure I grabbed on to the tree until someone came and found me," said the Northumbria University student.

Felix Baumgartner's record 24-mile skydive can now be seen - in part - from his own perspective, courtesy of a headcam attached to the Austrian's jumpsuit.
"When I was standing there on top of the world, you become so humble, you do not think about breaking records any more...the only thing you want is to come back alive," Felix Baumgartner told a press conference.
Asked what he said when he was about to jump, he repeated: "I know the whole world is watching now, and I wish the world could see what I see.
"And sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you are."
