Inside the Gherkin helmet by Mike King
Over 250 people took on the NSPCC's Step Change challenge yesterday to mount the 38 floors of 30 St Mary Axe and take in the view from the head of the erotic gherkin having raised plenty of quids for the kids. All good stuff but of course, it's a shadow of the event we're in training for, taking place on 25th February up what is, for a a little longer at least, the tallest completed tower in the city.
