Adventurous AXA staff took team building to new heights recently when they tackled a high-wire forest adventure course.

Sales support workers spent an afternoon mimicking their close relatives, the primates. In the words of their manager, they were having an "absolute hoot" - 30ft up on a network of tree-top rope bridges, zip slides and Tarzan leaps.

Unfortunately, some of the team, perhaps considering the likelihood of an imminent personal injury claim, were "petrified", and followed the rest taking photos.

One excited employee told Backchat: "We used muscles we hadn't used for a long time."
