Jet ski hero wows Clipper visitors

Waiting for Video...

The thousands of visitors milling around on the Quayside on Saturday night, enjoying the Maritime Festival and waiting for the fireworks display were treated to some unique entertainment.

Among those to entertain was world jet ski champion Anthony Burgess, who was attempting to break the world record for back flips on a jet ski.

Sheltered at the pontoon at Foyle Marina, he took several attempts before recording 28 consecutive flips in front of an appreciative crowd.

His death-defying stunt was caught on video by Londonderry Sentinel reporter Olga Bradshaw.
