HOLYWELL Town councillor, Daniel Thomas will be joined by his record-breaking son, Albie and celebrity, Paddy Doherty for what will be the final of their 'three peak' climbs. 

The trio will reunite once again to tackle England's highest point, Scafell Pike having already conquered Ben Nevis and Snowdon; Scotland and Wales' highest points respectively. 

Standing at 978 metres tall, Scafell Pike is England's highest mountain located in the Lake District. 

Daniel's 6-year-old son, Albie-Junior currently holds the record for being the youngest amputee to climb the two mountains - a feat which saw the youngster win both the Young Hero category and received the title of overall winner of the Amplifon Brave Britons awards last year.

Accompanied by their close family friend Paddy Doherty, the climb will take place on April 15 and will see the completion of the three peaks. 

Town councillor for Holywell, Daniel said: "It will be the third mountain and then we will have completed the three peaks.

"We've done it the wrong way round, we should have really started off with this one, but I think it's going to be another record for Albie, so he will be the youngest amputee again [to climb].

"He did Snowdon when he was four, Ben Nevis when he was five, and now this one as a six-year-old."


Proud dad Dan added that fearless Albie-Junior isn't fazed by the prospect of climbing Britain's highest mountains despite being an amputee.

He said: "He finds it easy. He really enjoyed Ben Nevis. He's really found the buzz for it now.

"He's always moaning and saying, 'when can we climb a mountain again?' - he loves it."

Looking ahead, Dan also revealed that further down the line, himself and Albie-Junior will be exploring the possibility of completing the famous 'three peak challenge'; a challenge which requires climbers to complete all three of the UK's highest mountains in 24-hours.
