Over the top.
Supergran Mary Lambert proved she has nerves of steel when she abseiled down The Baltic.
The 87-year-old amazed onlookers by arriving at the sponsored abseil on the back of a Harley Davidson motorbike before descending the famous Gateshead arts centre landmark suspended by just a rope.
Mary, of Spital Tongues, Newcastle, was one of 2,000 abseiling down the gallery over the weekend to raise money for the Royal National Institute of the Blind.
The pensioner took the challenge on Sunday but others who arrived on Saturday had a long wait after health and safety experts insisted on extra last-minute checks.
Event manager for the RNIB Sarah Hetherington said: "We offer our sincere apologies to everyone who was affected."
After completing the feat Mary said: "It was a marvelous feeling coming down with everyone watching me from the bottom. I didn't feel scared at all. But I was too scared to look down when I was at the top.
"They asked me to go down with someone else for safety reasons ( but I didn't mind that.
"One of my friends is blind and I know the problems he goes through so I wanted to do something to help. I am so pleased I did it. It's was thrilling and is one more thing ticked off my list of things to do."
