Tributes to charity abseil woman Gertrude Painter

The family of a 96-year-old woman who died just before taking part in a charity abseil have described her as an "amazing lady".

Gertrude Painter, from Crawley in West Sussex, was moments away from making the 70ft (21m) descent down the side of the town's hospital when she collapsed.
