A Sidmouth Town Band member proved she has a head for heights by completing the Dartmoor Drop Challenge to raise money for CLIC Sargent.

Lucy Beard, 14, braved the 100ft freefall from the Meldon Viaduct, near Okehampton, to raise £278.

“It was an amazing experience,” said Lucy.

“I wish I could have done it all over again.”
