Charity abseil postponed due to high winds

A charity abseil down the TT Grandstand Tower was called off due to high winds.

83-year-old Bob Leith from Laxey was due to make the descent at 10am on Sunday to raise funds for Live At Home. 

But due to safety reasons from abseiling experts, they advised him to not go ahead.

However, Jackie Bridson - Chief Executive of Live At Home has confirmed it'll be rescheduled for another date, with Bob completing the climb in memory of his wife Christine - who passed away just before Christmas last year.
