Two men have completed what is believed to be the remotest Base jump in the UK.

Simon Brentford and Darren Strafford jumped off the 900ft cliffs at Nebbifield in Foula, Shetland, with parachutes.

Base stands for 'building, antenna, span, earth' - the four fixed structures base jumpers can jump from.

Mr Brentford, of Leeds, told BBC Scotland: "I discovered it had never been jumped. The weather had to be spot on, with no wind."

He added: "It's a pretty special and unique experience. All you can see in front of you is the sea. It's that sense of exploration. That's very exciting."
