Dorchester's Mayor is stepping out of her comfort zone in a big way today.

Stella Jones is doing an 85 foot abseil down Blacknor South on Portland in aid of Autism Wessex at around half ten this morning.

The mayor's looking forward to the event with the only concern being the possible weather conditions.

It's not her first abseil either, having previously decended the water tower at Poole's Tower Park many years ago.

One of today's participants is believed to be in their 80's
