The former partner of an army officer, who tried to murder his wife by sabotaging her parachute, has told ITV she "dodged a bullet".

Earlier this year, Emile Cilliers from Amesbury, was sentenced to life in prison for tampering with his wife's skydiving equipment.

Vicky Cilliers survived after falling four thousand metres and hitting the ground at 60 MPH.

The case will be part of an ITV documentary which will broadcast on Wednesday.
