A North Walsham teenager has taken a massive leap to help others overcome the struggles of an eating disorder.
Ellen Caton completed a skydive on Saturday at Beccles Airfield in aid of Beat after experiencing her own battle when she was 13.
The North Walsham resident, now 19, only booked the challenge a month ago after spotting an advert looking for fundraisers.
She has beaten her £500 target and hopes it will help others.
Miss Caton said: "I have personally struggled with an eating disorder and I wanted to give back to the charity for those years I needed it.

"Eating disorders are a lot more common than we think, I know a lot of people including myself who have had to go through the mental torture of an eating disorder and I will do anything to try and help those who are struggling with this battle."
