VIDEO: Watch fearless Derbyshire pensioner Margaret fly down Europe’s longest and fastest zip wire

Derbyshire pensioner Margaret Jenner may be in her 70th year, but she didn’t let that stop her taking on the fastest zip wire in the world.

Margaret shot across the longest zip line in Europe at Penrhyn Quarry in North Wales, in support of the Deaf and Hearing Support charity.

The mile-long zip line sends riders at speeds of up to 119mph, 500 feet above the ground.
