RAF Cosford cleaners need a head for heights

Aircraft suspended from a hangar roof at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, in Shropshire, have undergone their annual clean thanks to a specially-trained crew.

The team of six were attached to ropes and harnesses before being lowered on to the planes housed within the National Cold War Exhibition.

It's a particularly important year for the museum, as the RAF will mark its 100th birthday in April with a series of events called RAF100.
