Prince Andrew has completed his abseil down the Shard skyscraper in London on Monday to raise money for charity.

Nearly £300,000 was raised, which will go to educational charity The Outward Bound Trust, of which the prince is chairman, and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.

The 52-year old royal said the most difficult part was stepping out from the 87th floor of Europe's tallest building.
