The editor of a weekly newspaper series in deepest Somerset is about to be thrown to the sharks.
It’s not because he’s upset the juniors – he’s volunteered for the job to raise money for a local charity.
The money he raises will go to Victoria Hospital in Frome and the North East Somerset Trust for Children.
David said: “I read about the Blue Planet Aquarium allowing people to dive with sharks and thought it would be a great way to raise money.
“We’ve been supporting the two charities for the past 18 months and I have decided it was time to do something personally.
“For obvious reasons I am trying to collect the sponsor money before I go in rather than after – although one person has sponsored me for every limb I bring back.”
