Wind and rain has failed to dampen the spirits of runners and spectators at the Great North Run in Newcastle.

Almost 56,000 people have taken to the streets of Tyneside to take part in the event.

World and Olympic champion Mo Farah narrowly missed out on becoming the first UK runner in 25 years to win the men's race.

Phil Bodmer reports from the start line.
