Eden from above: watch our amazing GoPro footage

A 90-year-old man from Yeovil has become the oldest man to zip wire over the Eden Project.

Jim Essex, who has recently battled cancer, took up the challenge as part of his fundraising efforts for Yeovil Hospital.

Eden offers the longest and fastest zip wire in the UK, reaching speeds of up to 50mph. We asked Jim to strap a GoPro to his head as he took the 65ft drop.
