    The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, has been forced to postpone his charity parachute jump due to bad weather.

    Dr Sentamu was to jump from 12,500ft with the Parachute Regiment's Red Devils team to raise money for families of soldiers injured in Afghanistan.

    But organisers at Langar Airfield in Nottinghamshire were forced to call off the jump on Tuesday morning amid strong winds, driving rain and low cloud.

    The charity tandem jump has been rescheduled to 6 June.

    Bit more time to raise a bit more money.

  2. You would of thought he could have had a word upstairs with the man to fix the weather.

    But as said at least more time to raise some money, so not all bad.
