Amazing video shows kayaker descending a 128-foot waterfall

A British kayaker has set a new record after dropping down a 128-foot high waterfall.

Bren Orton made the daring descent down Big Banana Falls in Mexico.

The fall is thought to be the second highest descent in history.

Orton says it is definitely a British record.

Despite the success of his latest descent, he says his family would like to have him settle down in his hometown of Warrington, Cheshire.

However, he also says that he doesn't see himself doing that anytime soon.
