Leaping 13,000 feet out of a plane, plunging to earth at speeds of over 120mph is not how most people would prepare for a wedding.

But groom-to-be Clive Mann, 30, is doing just that - and all for a Lowestoft charity.

Mr Mann, who lives in Chichester with his fiancée Hayley Fulbrook, will be taking on the challenge at Beccles airfield on July 25 for Dial, where his future mother-in-law Julie Fulbrook works.

Mr Mann said: 'As I got to know more about Julie's job and what a fantastic cause it is I said I wanted to do something to help out. As it's our wedding year and we've recently bought our first home I thought I would take one more big jump this year!

'So I've decided to jump out of a plane for charity - the wonderful Dial.

'I really feel strongly for the cause and being on benefits is such a contentious subject and very very high on the political agenda at the moment.
