Extreme highwire

More news from China...

Head for heights

Two Chinese high wire walkers have set a record after crossing on a single wire more than 850ft above ground.

Adili, vice-chairman of the China Acrobatic Artists Association, and his apprentice, Ya Gebu, 19, completed the stunt without safety wires or nets.

They started at opposite ends and had to climb over each other in the middle of the wire to finish the journey.

The wire was more than 1.1 kilometres long, and it was stretched over a valley in Muhe Big Valley, a scenic spot in Gansu province.
