British man disabled due to Manchester bombing scales Africa's highest peak in a wheelchair

Martin Hibbert, from Lancashire, and his daughter Eve, then aged 14, were six metres away from suicide bomber Salman Abadi when he detonated his device five years ago last month.

A British man, who survived the Manchester Arena bombing, has conquered the summit of Africa’s highest mountain Mount Kilimanjaro in his wheelchair.

Martin Hibbert, from Lancashire, and his daughter Eve, who was then aged 14, were six metres away from suicide bomber Salman Abadi when he detonated his device five years ago.

Hibbert suffered a severed spinal cord from shrapnel in the bombing which left 22 dead and hundreds injured.

He reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro this weekend with the aid of a personal team of helpers and local guides and porters.

45-year-old Hibbert launched the mission to scale Mount Kilimanjaro as he in his words wanted to move mountains for disabled people.

He has already raised around half of the £1 million target of donations to fund the Spinal Injuries Association.
