Actor Bernard Hill – best known for appearing in films such as Titanic and Lord of the Rings – was one of 90 people who abseiled down a lighthouse in the UK recently to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

It is the second time the actor has taken part in the event – he abseiled the same lighthouse in 2009, commenting: “It shouldn’t be a charity – it should be a state-funded institution like the NHS. It’s a mark of the quality of the people that volunteer for it because people would just die out there without their help. It’s a vital service. People don’t understand what the sea is about and how dangerous it can be, that in five minutes it can all change.”
