It probably seemed a good idea at the time but RAF officer Steve Hawkins was nearly put to flight by the pain he endured during a charity body wax.
The flight lieutenant, head of establishment at the former RAF Stanbridge, did his bit for charity on Tuesday by getting his back and chest waxed in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. He started out on the base, now called DE&S Stanbridge, by having colleagues wax his back and then he moved into town to Sunshine and Smoothies beauty saloon where owner Liz Cox and her girls were waiting to complete the job.
