Two fearless Midlothian sisters are on the up after taking a very big drop for charity.

Gail and Julie Paterson, from Mayfield, raised £900 for Alzheimer Scotland – Action on Dementia when they abseiled from the Forth Bridge.

The 37-year-old twins dropped 167 feet alongside a parapet of the historic structure, landing safely on the ground at South Queensferry.
