High speed landing for lucky escape Red Devil duo

A Red Devil parachutist had a lucky escape when his chute failed to open during an airshow - but a team-mate caught him in mid-air.

The Army freefall parachute display team was performing at the Whitehaven Air Show in Cumbria on Friday night when the parachute failed.

Amateur footage shot by Rebecca Kiggins shows the men coming down together and crashing into the harbour waters.
