Essex Fire and Rescue said it helped the pair after they were snared 20 metres in the air close to Halstead, near Braintree.

Firefighers arrived shortly before 6pm on Sunday and had the two daredevils on the ground around an hour and 20 minutes later.

A fire service spokesman said: "Crews used the aerial ladder platform (ALP) to rescue the two parachutists from the mast. They were left in the care of the ambulance service."
