A daredevil was blasted as ‘crazy’ for filming himself dicing with death on a paddleboard across a 126ft-high aqueduct.

Ally Law, 25, from Southampton, swayed from side to side across the historic structure as he paddled across the aqueduct.

The stunt on Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Llangollen, North Wales, has now been blasted as ‘crazy’ by campaigners. 

In the paddleboard footage, he can be heard describing the cold winter conditions in temperatures as low as two-degrees.

Mr Law took to the board wearing just a pair of shorts and socks – and can be seen almost falling off.

The Youtuber said: ‘I either go in and get hypothermia, or I go overboard and fall about a hundred feet.’

He filmed the crossing on a head mounted GoPro camera and can be heard saying ‘oh no’ as he crosses. 

Law has taken part in daring climbs around the world – and also broke into the Big Brother studio during a live eviction in 2018.

He also ran around a swimming centre in the middle of the night after hiding in a flume with his friends in 2017.

The Canal & River Trust charity in Wales previously launched a ‘PontySafety’ campaign to stop the dozens of people who have to cross it.

Ani Sutton, of the canal trust, said: ‘I am a paddleboarder myself and I know how easy it is to get blown over or off course. The aqueduct has its own micro climate, with sudden gusts of wind.

‘Anyone who stands up on a paddle board across the aqueduct, with no safety railings, is taking crazy risks.

‘We ask everyone to get off their board and walk along the towpath, towing their paddle board in the water behind them.’
