Wing walker's emotional tribute to Stephen Sutton

Ninety-four-year-old dare-devil pensioner Tom Lackey from Solihull is gearing up for his 30th wing walk from Land's End to the Scilly Isles, in the name of teenage cancer sufferer Stephen Sutton.

The 19-year-old from Burntwood in Staffordshire lost his battle with the illness this week.

Mr Lackey is dedicating his latest stunt, scheduled for this Thursday, to Stephen. He told ITV News Central:

"He's done so much good and raised all this money and he would have done a wing walk. He always put his thumbs up in the air so when I do this one from Lands End to the Isles of Scilly I think I will put my thumbs up for him and imagine that he's with me."
