      The Daddy, otherwise known as Glenn Ross, UK's Strongest Man, is pictured pulling a bmibaby aircraft in a unique tug of war at Belfast City Airport.
      The tug of war, between Glenn Ross and five TinyLife dads was to raise funds for TinyLife bmibaby's Northern Ireland charity for premature and vulnerable children.

      The Daddy who is also 5 times winner of UK's Strongest Man impressed onlookers as he pulled the bmibaby aircraft a mighty 10 metres.

      Julian Carr MD of bmibaby commented: "We are delighted to have The Daddy on board to help raise awareness for TinyLife, our Northern Ireland charity. TinyLife raise much needed funds for the local families of babies who are born too soon. What better way to help raise awareness for the charity than enlisting the help of Northern Ireland International Strong Man Glenn Ross to flex his muscles against our TinyLife Dads!"

      Valerie Cromie, TinyLife Regional Fundraising Manager said: "This is a fantastic way to raise awareness for TinyLife. Our TinyLife dads have already showed that they can handle pressure but they have really been put to the test today against Strong Man Glenn Ross we're sure that they are up for the challenge!"

      TinyLife is committed to ensuring all families who have experienced the birth of a baby requiring special or intensive care get all the help they need. Approximately 2,000 babies are admitted to Northern Ireland's neonatal units each year. TinyLife is dedicated to reducing premature birth, illness, disability and death in babies born here. It is a Northern Ireland based charity and all funds raised will ensure that it can continue its vital services across the province. For more information on bmibaby visit
