The youngster is hoping to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks with dad Adam.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in under 12 hours.

In May, Lucas and dad Adam took on the epic Three Peaks Challenge climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon in 23 hours, 46 minutes and 24 seconds meaning he is the youngest ever person believed to have achieved the feat.

Their determination got them through the daunting challenge, and got them through the tough moments in the middle of the night, feeling tired and hungry.

After they completed the feat, Adam said: "Emotions are all over the place, I am super proud of how a six-year-old can achieve something like this.

"A moment of pain is a lifetime of glory.

"It is proof that, with the right guidance a child is capable of anything."

And Lucas was given a special ovation when he returned to his school, Sutton Manor Primary.

As well as breaking a record, Lucas, along with his dad, took on the feat in aid of Deptherapy, which seeks to rehabilitate UK Armed Service personnel and veterans who have suffered life changing physical and or mental injuries and illnesses through specially designed scuba diving programmes.

Army veteran Adam had previously featured in the Star in 2010 when he tripped a hidden bomb in the battle zones of Afghanistan.

Incredibly he survived unscathed – with the blast of the device knocking him off his feet and burning holes and tears in his boots.

A dazed Adam had to scramble away from the scene as the troops came under fire from a Taliban ambush.
