The 48-year-old said: “It was my first abseil and I found it very scary. I’m not a trusting sort of person and it took a great deal of willpower to trust that rope.”

Prior to the abseil Paul had his head shaved by fellow bus driver Jared Bassett.

Paul has raised £1,080 with Stagecoach Midlands adding a further £530.
