The senior officers descended the glass-fronted main entrance of the state-of-the-art building which stands opposite Leeds United’s ground.

Representatives from Leeds United, including owner Massimo Cellino, lent their support to the event, which will be raising money for Martin House children’s hospice in Boston Spa.

Chief Superintendent Money said before the event: “Our headquarters may not be the tallest building in Leeds but it’s certainly a daunting enough height for us all to make our way down by rope in the name of charity.

“I hope as many people as possible will come along to witness our efforts at a graceful descent and help us to raise some funds for the absolutely vital work that Martin House does.

“The event promises be a great opportunity for people to get a behind-the-scenes look at the work we do and there will be plenty of fun on offer for all the family.”
