A group of Volunteer Police Cadets have raised money for local charities after abseiling down Bridewell police station in Bristol.

Nine teenagers and three cadet leaders from the South Gloucestershire unit took up the challenge and raised more than £600 for local charities, including Shopmobility, South Gloucestershire Chinese Association and the South Gloucestershire Parents and Carers group.

Cadet leader Sergeant Steve Ives said: “This was a really good event thanks to excellent support from the Avon and Somerset Police rope access team. Some of the cadets were very nervous and yet overcame their fears, all in the name of charity. We're all very proud of them.
