Doris Long, 101, Break Her Own Abseiling World Record

A 101-year-old woman has said she felt no fear as she broke her own world record for being the oldest abseiler, by descending 94m down the side of a viewing tower. Wind and rain did not deter Doris Long, who has been honoured with an MBE for her charity fundraising, as she abseiled down the spinnaker tower in Portsmouth, Hampshire. She last performed the feat on her 100th birthday in May 2014.Doris Long after her successful descent of the Spinnaker tower. Photograph: Steve Parsons/PA

The pensioner, nicknamed Daring Doris, who has previously abseiled alongside the broadcaster Chris Evans, took up the challenge once again to raise money for the Rowans hospice in Waterlooville. Long, who first abseiled at the age of 85, said: “I don’t feel afraid and never have – I just have a placid nature.”
