Chris Evans joins 96-year-old in Portsmouth abseil

Tuesday June 1, 2010

Chris Evans joined a 96-year-old lady in abseiling down a 220ft tower block in Portsmouth at the weekend.

Doris "Daring" Young broke a world record and became the oldest person ever to abseil as the pair hurtled down the building.

"It's great to break the record," Doris said after the challenge.

"The abseil was fun and it was lovely coming down alongside Chris. He is a lovely man. I'm 96 years young now and, I'm not being boastful, but I wasn't nervous at all. I don't feel my age one bit."
