Bradford firm steps in to save stunt
5:44pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
A daredevil escape stunt at serious risk of falling through has been rescued after a Bradford company stepped in and donated steel for the eight-foot circumference steel cage complete with shackles and locks.
Escapologist Antony Britton, a former pupil of Beckfoot School, Bingley, who was brought up in Saltaire, will be giving himself 90 seconds to escape from the cage, fastened by 22 locks, multiple chains and seven shackles.
Mr Britton is hoping this stunt will be less of a pain than the one last Halloween when he hung 50 feet upside down over a river in Wakefield and one of the burning ropes supporting him came loose, setting him on fire while crowds looked on in horror.
But this spectacular stunt, due to be held in Centenary Square, Bradford, on Saturday, September 21, will raise funds for Help for Heroes.
Barrett Steel Bradford has donated a truckload of steel for the event.
