Andrew in Shard abseil for charity

The Duke of York is to abseil from the summit of London's Shard, the tallest building in Europe, to raise funds for good causes.

Andrew will descend more than three-quarters of the 1,016ft skyscraper, from the 87th floor down to the 20th on September 3.

His 820ft daredevil stunt is in aid of the Outward Bound Trust and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
