FEARLESS fundraisers came out unscathed - after spending the night sleeping just inches away from a pride of lions.

Kristian Reynolds, aged 36, Abby Richardson, 19, Simon Woodburn, 20, and Susan Brown, 52, all from Misterton, cosied up with the ferocious felines at Yorkshire Wildlife Park for one night only to raise funds for Comic Relief.

Ex-soldier Kristian said: “It was more scary than being in the Army to be honest. I’ve slept out before lots of times but never with a group of lions.”

It is the third year the park has staged the event.
