A pair of young daredevils scaled a 265ft crane to eat PANCAKES at the top – before being spotted by site security. 

David Nelmes, 24, from Leeds – who is known for his free running – decided to attempt the pre-Shrove Tuesday climb in a bid to ‘be creative,’ with his pal, Sam Patrick. 

The athletes said it took 10 minutes to reach the top of the crane and the pancakes were incredible with a view across their hometown. 

David said: “It took me around 10 minutes to get to the top of it – I could have probably done it quicker, but we weren’t in any rush.

“You’ve got to get creative with these things.” 

David’s and Sam are both Parkour athlete – which is a form of freerunning – say the pair were relaxed during their ascent.

Once at the top, site security spotted the two men so they decided to head back down – after eating their pancakes of course. 

David added: “We were pretty relaxed whilst climbing the crane and sitting on top. 

“It’s nothing new to us and we take all the necessary precautions to ensure our safety and to cause no damage.”
