Sheringham teenager prepares for birthday skydive

A Sheringham teenager is set to celebrate her 16th birthday by throwing herself out of a plane for a good cause.

Natasha Nurse, from Cedar Grove, will brave the skydive on March 16 - three days after her big day - to raise money for Autism Anglia.

The Sheringham High School student has a relative with autism, and is ready for the challenge at Old Buckenham Airfield despite admitting to being 'very scared'.

She said: 'I've always wanted to do a skydive because someone in my family did one. And I've raised money for charity before, by doing a doing a sponsored run and cycle ride for Children in Need.'

Natasha is doing the skydive with her stepfather, Michael 'Fish' Sadler', who is undertaking the jump to give her some support.
