A daring free-climber who managed to scale a 100ft church tower was almost faced the wrath of God - because locals spotted his mate's drone buzzing around.

Jacko Adams, 19, climbed the turret of Old Hamsey Church without any safety equipment to catch a spectacular sunset.

But the daring teen, who has been climbing for almost ten years, says a prying local almost foiled their ascent in Lewes, East Sussex.
