Daredevils take plunge at cathedral.

HUNDREDS of thrill-seekers took a leap of faith by abseiling down Liverpool Cathedral.

Deans of both the Anglican and Metropolitan cathedrals were among those to take the 150ft plunge to raise money for a raft of Merseyside charities.

The annual event, held today and next Saturday, will see a total of 400 people take part.

Tina Morris, cathedral fundraising officer, said: "The cathedral holds a special place in Merseysiders' hearts, and the abseil is a unique way to experience the building whilst helping the mission to develop its work in the community."

The event has been themed around the First World War and participants and supporters were asked to dress up in clothes from the era.
