London marathon: Running with a hole in her head

A mother from Folkestone is preparing to run the London Marathon with a 7cm (3in) hole in her skull.

Christine Pegler discovered she had a brain tumour while training for the 2014 event.

She had an operation to remove the tumour but had to be treated for an infection in November. She is now waiting to have the hole covered by a titanium plate.

BBC South East's Leanne Rinne reports.
