Tightrope walker risks life and limb on Orme.

A THRILL-seeker risked life and limb to walk between cliffs on Llandudno's Great Orme on a tightrope.

The highwire walker was seen carrying out the stunt several hundred feet in the air on Saturday afternoon at around 3pm.

Mike Ormond, who took these dramatic photos of the feat, said: "It was a blustery day. People were out kitesurfing so it was pretty windy.

"It was pretty hair-raising watching it from below, especially when the person seemed to struggle quite a bit.

"I took the images just by the Tollgate House, and a small crowd had gathered to watch.

"They did have a safety harness on, but I wouldn't have risked it as it would have been a big drop if they'd fallen."
