Skydiver lands in cardboard boxes
A stuntman is thought to have become the first person to jump out of a helicopter and land safely without deploying a parachute.
Gary Connery, 42, used a "wingsuit" to make his descent from 2,400ft (730m) above Oxfordshire.
The 42-year-old said he felt "elated" after landing on a pile of 18,600 cardboard boxes.
He was fitted with a parachute for the jump, which saw him accelerate to 80mph, but it was not deployed.
