Cop is looking to top 'Everest'.

A detective attempting to climb the equivalent height of Everest has begun his ascent.

Dc Martin Rathbone, 47, will be covering the distance of the world's highest mountain by climbing Penyfan, in the Brecon Beacons, 19 times.

The Gwent Police officer, who is raising money for the Search and Rescue Dogs Association of South Wales (Sarda), is expecting to complete the challenge on May 16.

He said: 'I am extremely grateful for all the support that I and of course Sarda have received. It's early days yet, but already the response has been tremendous.'

Wales rugby star Robert Sidoli said: 'This is a magnificent effort by Martin.'
