    Warwickshire man nose-pushes Brussels sprout up Snowdon

    A man has completed his challenge to push a Brussels sprout up Snowdon using his nose.



    Stuart Kettell, from Balsall Common in the West Midlands, started out on Wednesday and reached the 1,085m (3,560ft) summit in three days.

    The 49-year-old trained for his charity mission by pushing a sprout around his garden with his nose.

    Mr Kettell said he selected a large sprout so it would not fall down a crevice in the rock.

    His aim was to collect at least 5,000 in sponsorship for Macmillan Cancer Support, but does not yet know how much he has raised.

    "People definitely think I'm mad, and I'm beginning to think it myself," he said.

    Mr Kettell, who has previously raised money by staying inside a box for a week, said this latest challenge was the most uncomfortable yet.

    "It hurt my arms, my legs, my feet, my knees and my neck," he said.



    Stuart Kettell wore a special faceguard to protect as much of his skin as possible

    I thought this thread was about the US guy name of Snowdon who snitched to Wikileaks.

    That throttler needs a pineapple pushed up him, not a brussels sprout.

    Maybe he should have done it without the bloody enormous rucksack on his back. What purpose did that serve?

    I suppose it was not helium filled. Maybe would have helped if it was.

    Maybe if he were terminal he might take a different view.

    They do a fantastic job and it must be soul destroying. I don't know how they do it tbh.

    Not everyone handles it the same way though.
