Ally Law (born: February 2, 1997 (1997-02-02) [age 22]) is a YouTuber from England, known for performing parkour stunts and doing free solo climbing on a range of buildings and structures.

Early life

Ally Law was born on February 2, 1997 in Southampton, England. He attended the secondary school Oasis Academy Mayfield, leaving in 2013. Law notes that before starting parkour at the age of 16, he was "extremely unhappy sat in [his] bedroom wasting away day after day, [he] had quit school and had no friends [and] had absolutely no idea what [he] wanted to do with [his] life." He had been addicted to a video game since the age of 13.

YouTube career

Law started his YouTube channel in December 2014. The video he uploaded was of him performing parkour on the top of buildings in Southampton city centre, filmed on a GoPro camera. Law started to receive local media attention in the Southern Daily Echo for his stunts in December 2015, after he scaled Dumbleton Towers in the Thornhill area of the city.

He has climbed in many locations around the world, such as MelbournJordan505 (talk) 04:03, February 17, 2018 (UTC) SEX, Dubai, Bangkok, and Barcelona.

As a consequence of trespassing Thorpe Park to climb the Stealth roller coaster in July 2017, Law was globally banned from all Merlin Entertainment theme parks and amusements for life.

Controversy

Law has continuously received criticism from politicians, police and general members of the public for his climbing and trespassing of property. He has been warned multiple times by Hampshire Constabulary for trespassing, and after the video footage of him climbing Dumbleton Towers appeared on the Daily Echo, Southampton City Council leader Simon Letts stated that "It is a tragedy waiting to happen and someone's mother is not going to have a son at Christmas." In response to the trespassing, Law says "I always make sure I find them and explain to them what I am doing and in most cases the police are really understanding."

Speaking to 9news.com.au, after climbing a crane in Melbourne, Law stated that "[he] is not going to pretend it's not dangerous [...] I will never put myself in a situation I'm not 110 percent confident with."

When Law and a group of friends broke into the Etihad Stadium in September 2017, The Independent called the incident a "concerning security breach".

Personal life

Law continues to live in Southampton, and is a qualified carpenter. He often uploads the various stunts he performs to YouTube, and also occasionally does vlogs.
