Within 24 hours, 404 people will need to jump out of a plane as part of a tandem skydive - to beat the current world record of 403.

More than 80 local, national and international charities are looking for fundraisers to break a world record in Honiton.

The record attempt for the most tandem skydives in 24 hours will take place at Skydive Buzz Ltd, at Dunkeswell Airfield, on Monday, June 20.

Within 24 hours, 404 people will need to jump out of a plane to beat the current world record of 403.

Spaces are still available and more participants are required to take part on the day.

Tandem instructors and camera flyers will come to Dunkeswell from all over the country, while three of the worlds’ fastest skydiving planes will be used.

Participants will be jumping from sunrise till sunset.

“As long as people are reasonably fit and healthy, they can do a skydive,” said Jason Farrant, owner of Skydive Buzz.

Those interested but on a budget could possibly do a skydive using the Jump For Free scheme when raising money for charity.
