This teenager from St Peter's School, in Huntingdon, was all in a tangle as she was passed through a spider's web during an Outward Bound Association challenge day.

The event, at Sawtry Community College, saw teams taking on a variety of challenges from traversing a river to negotiating a 'minefield'.

Jane Newton, chairman of the Cambs & Peterborough Outward Bound Association, said: "Outward Bound is a great way for children to develop their team work and interpersonal skills."

Children aged 13-18 took part in the activities.

Mrs Newton added: "Fund-raising is also an important part of Outward Bound and our youngsters help out with things like bag-packing in supermarkets to help raise cash."

Outward Bound also sends some of its children on week-long adventure courses around the country.
