This is the moment a daredevil somersaults into the sea from a famous natural landmark in a fearless display of tombstoning.

Daredevil tombstoner caught on camera

The composite image captures his tumble from the stunning limestone arch at Durdle Door on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset.

Photographer Jon Mills, 35, took pictures of the thrill-seeker as he climbed the arch before executing a neat somersault on Easter Monday.

He said: ”I was on the beach when three tombstoners turned up and took turns climbing the rock face before throwing themselves off.

”They were practising different tricks and jumps – some more gracefully than others – for about an hour.

”This guy seemed pretty accomplished and I managed to catch him doing a brilliant somersault and landing with a splash.”

Pink Floyd’s final studio album ‘The Division Bell’ features a scene photographed at Durdle Door.
