The lad, who is a big fan of the superhero, spent five months designing and making the gadget. He attached two giant suckerpads to the 1,400-watt cleaners - and uses the vacuum suction to grip the wall and support his weight.

The lad, who attends King's College School in Cambridge, said: "I used to dress up as Spiderman when I was younger and I love all the films.
