‘Argh! Please get me down from this wall!’

GET your Gazette this week for a full picture spread of the rugby superstars and costumed superheroes who took part in a charity abseil challenge.

Our reporter David O’Neill, pictured above, joined rugby champs from the Saracens for an abseil from the 100ft Dixon building in Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead.

David grinned on instruction, but found the Sunday event terrifying.

The man next to him – John Dickins, 70 – had tripped and was dangling upside down by his feet, but later said he had a great time.

The day made more than £10,000 for The Hospice of St Francis, Northchurch.
