Northam man was so entranced by the experience he has already booked six more.

FREE falling from a plane can be a terrifying experience for some, but for one Northam man it has been an inspiration.

Stewart Bradley decided to take on his first sky dive for the charity CLIC Sargent, but found himself so enthralled with the experience he has booked six more.

Now the 30-year-old, who works in Lidl in Torrington, is hoping he can get his licence and eventually teach people the adrenaline sport.

“I wasn’t nervous at all when I was in the plane; I just really wanted to do it,” said Stewart.
