A group of Norfolk power workers are preparing to climb the highest UK peak, equal to 128 electricity poles.

The plan is to ascend the Scottish mountain Ben Nevis to raise money for charity.

These men, who usually spend their day more than 10 metres up an electricity pole working on overhead lines for UK Power Networks, have decided to make the climb.

Overhead linesperson Mark Alexander said: "We work quite a lot together and get on really well, plus we are all fairly fit.”

As these men work out in all weathers, they aren't worried about any potential weather issues they may face while climbing.

Mr Alexander said: "When you get to the top it’s lovely, you have to climb past the snow and then you get a clear view.”

With their everyday job requiring them to be high off the ground, the group of men are not scared of heights and aren't concerned about scaling the 1,345 feet of the mountain.

Instead of the usual four hours to reach the peak, Mark is hopeful they can achieve this great feat nearer to three hours.

The team is set to raise funds for Norfolk charity Nelson's Journey.

This charity supports children and young people in the county who have lost a significant person.

Three of the men in the group, including Keith Sturman and his two sons, Karl and Guy, have sons who also work on the power lines.

On May 9, they will fly to Scotland to begin their charitable effort.

Mark said the group would enjoy themselves and help each other on the climb.

Despite the lack of substantial hills in Norfolk for practice, they're eager to engage in training walks for Ben Nevis.

Their fundraising efforts can be bolstered through their Just Giving page.
