'Spiderdad' stars in film to honour his son

When he dressed up as spiderman to surprise his terminally ill son on his birthday, Mike Wilson never expected the moment would make them internet superstars.

Five-year-old Jayden loved the super hero, so his dad Mike made sure he met him on his special day.

Since then Jayden has sadly passed away from a rare brain tumour.

Now 'superdad' Mike has made a film dedicated to Jayden which he hopes will raise money for the Naomi House Children's Hospice.

Please don't try this at home!
