An Ilford woman climbed the O2 Arena to help raise more than £15,000 for charity on Sunday.

Angie Litson joined 56 colleagues from Barclays bank for the 170ft climb.

The team had to battle high winds and a 30 per cent incline to get to the summit of the former Millenium Dome.

Angie said: “It was an exhilarating, and at times scary, climb for us all, but we were more than happy to swap our suits for jumpsuits and give it a go for Macmillan.”

It raised more than £15,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
