Tomorrow morning David Davis will be breaking a record. He will become the first civilian to abseil 510 feet from the Humber Bridge - all all in the name of charity. It's part of the Humber Bridge 25th anniversary celebrations and he'll be doing the abseil for the Castle Hill Cancer Care Unit. DD will be first down, followed by a group of Royal Marines.
If you'd like to sponsor him, send a cheque made payable to the Castle Hill Oncology Health Centre, David Davis Charity Abseil, FREEPOST NEA8148, 32 Main Street, Willberby, Hull, HU10 6BR.
Rumours that the organisers had originally asked another local MP, John Prescott, to take part are totally unfounded, as they couldn't find any ropes strong enough.
I'm told that DD will be doing the abseil a second time on Saturday, when the Blue Peter Cameras will be present. I do hope he will be wearing his hoodie...!

PS And I do know the difference between rock climbing and abseiling - couldn't find any good abseiling pictures!
