Bessacarr skydiver Shell Meakins, aged 37, has narrowly missed out on breaking a UK record.

She was part of an all-female team of skydivers, together named Brit Chicks, attempting to create a new British record of a 69 strong butterfly formation in the skies above Nottinghamshire.

But the group missed out on the attempt by just one person failing to complete the formation. The divers leapt from 12,000ft at Langar.
