Afive year old boy is on the verge of achieving a spectacular new world record after climbing the equivalent height of Mount Everest in just six months. Since April this year Charlie Batham has climbed 30,000ft higher than the tallest mountain in the world to reach the top of 19 British peaks. Two of the youngster's most impressive conquests are 2,300ft Pen-y-ghent and Scafell Pike in the Lake District the tallest mountain in England at more than 3,000ft. Schoolboy Charlie often hikes up to ten miles a day but his father Paul, 51, says his boy "never gets tired" and has "unbelievable" energy to keep going for hours and hours. Mr Batham has now nominated his "brilliant" boy for a brand new Guinness World Record as the "youngest person to climb the equivalent height of Mount Everest". He said: "I can't believe how well Charlie has done in such a short space of time, I'm really proud of him. "To see him go up these hills and mountains at the pace he does is unbelievable.
