Firefighters climb the equivalent of Everest

Waiting for Video...

Firefighters and their friends took part in a ladder climb – the equivalent height of Mount Everest.

Waterlooville watch manager Craig Sadler was joined by three other firefighters and four friends for the climb, which took place in Waterlooville town centre.

Each person took it in turns to scale the 45ft ladder to reach the summit of 29,000ft in a relay of 650 times.

Money raised from the ladder climb will be split between Football For Cancer and the Fire Fighters Charity.
