Six-year-old Holly McHugh is running her own marathon, one mile at a time, to support her mother who is taking part in the London race on Sunday.

Holly is too young to take part in the 26-mile feat but her attempts to make her own mark have already caught the attention of other athletes and celebrities.

The BBC's Mike Bushell reports.
