Boy, 7, with cerebral palsy climbs Ben Nevis after docs said he'd never walk

A BOY of seven who was told he would never walk has scaled Britain’s tallest peak.

Caeden Thomson, who has cerebral palsy, took 13 hours to trek 4,413ft up Ben Nevis, raising £8,400.

He was born 12 weeks premature and needs intense physiotherapy.

Caeden's parents were told he would never talk, sit or walk when he was younger.

Caeden said: “My body hurts but I’m OK. I felt sick and exhausted at the top, and exhausted but happy at the bottom!”

Mum Lisa, of Corby, Northants, added: “There were many hard times. The last part of the path is just massive boulders.

“Caeden is a legend. We are super proud.”

She said he wanted to to give something back because “he was so lucky for all the things he has had in his life”.

The money will help charity Scope and the NHS.
