Stars climb 8-metre wall in Covent Garden

A group of celebrities scaled new heights for a challenge in Covent Garden.

Davina McCall, Alice Beer, Julia Bradbury, Jim Rosenthal and Jon Culshaw were among those who took on an 8 metre climbing wall.

It was all part of an event to mark the 60th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Award - a youth achievement scheme for 14 to 24-year-olds.

As part of a year of celebrations the public are being invited to take part by completing their own Diamond Challenge.
