Does your boss leave you all at sea? If so, why not make him, or her, walk the plank into Hartlepool Marina.

The Hartlepool and District Hospice is seeking volunteers, or victims, to walk the plank for charity.

Organisers want people to challenge a boss or colleague to walk the plank during this month's Maritime Festival at the town's Historic Quay.
