A Glossop mum faced her fear of heights as she jumped from a Manchester museum and crossed a canal on a zip wire for charity.

Kaye Phillips leapt off the Air Shard, a 30-metre high tower at the Imperial War Museum North, and rode the 250-metre line across the Manchester Ship Canal to the Lowry.

Of the experience, which has helped raise over £2,000 for High Peak Women’s Aid, Kaye said: “It was higher and more scary than I had imagined. I will never jump from that height again unless the building is on fire!”

She added: “I have been overwhelmed by the generosity and support.”
