Sky dive for injured soldiers

Two hundred and one sky divers took part in the jump Photo: ITV Meridian

The world record for tandem sky dives has been smashed in the skies above the South. Two hundred and one jumps took place in one day - many of them by people who'd never parachuted before.

It was a spectacular and emotional event - organised by a charity in memory of soldiers who've lost their lives in Afghanistan and to raise money for those injured in the conflict.
