Members of Fit Together, Ossett, attended Alfie’s street to sing him happy birthday after his mum, Bekki, took to social media to request the mystery Mr Incredible.

The family had seen Andy Freeman running around Ossett dressed as Mr Incredible and reached out to him to see if they could pay a visit on his special day.

Phill Revell said: “It was absolutely brilliant, it made his day.”
