Free fall supergran, 84, is a 10,000ft daredevil

An 84-year-old great grandmother has taken a 10,000ft (3,000m) skydiving plunge to raise money for charity.

Doreen Oury, nicknamed "supergran", hurtled towards the ground at 120mph (193km/h) strapped to a skydiver for the tandem jump.


"This was something I needed to do for me, and it was lovely that I could help raise money for Brendoncare at the same time," said Mrs Oury.

She raised £3,000 for Brendoncare Knightwood care centre where she lives.
