Ex-paratrooper attempts record jump without parachute

A former paratrooper has attempted to break two world records after jumping from an aircraft into the sea.

John Bream, 34, nicknamed "the Flying Fish", dropped about 130ft (40m) from a helicopter off Hayling Island on the Hampshire coast.

Support divers said he was briefly unconscious when he hit the water and was taken to hospital as a precaution.
