A teenager from Rhyl who has dedicated his life to looking after his disabled mum, rescuing animals and raising money for charity, has been given a special Radio 1 Teen Hero award - by one of his very own personal heroes.

Alexander Walker, 13, who also plays clarinet in the Rhyl Youth Marching band, was at the weekly practice in the local scout hut, when in walked wildlife presenter Steve Backshall from CBBC's Deadly 60, to break the good news.

BBC Radio Wales reporter Sarah Easedale was there.
