Kent runner to mark relative's marathon record centenary

A Kent teenager is running the London Marathon in memory of her great-grandfather who held the world record for the distance in 1913.

Isobel Bannister, 19, from Tunbridge Wells, will take part in the race nearly 100 years after Harry Green broke the marathon record at a track in Shepherds Bush, west London.
