Donations soar further following marathon runner death

Donations to a fund-raising page set up by a 30-year-old woman who collapsed close to the London Marathon finish line have surged since her death.

Claire Squires, a hairdresser from North Kilworth, Leicestershire, collapsed near Birdcage Walk on the final stretch of the 26.2-mile course.

More than £350,000 has been raised for the Samaritans so far, with money continuing to be pledged.

Ms Squires' family have described her as an "incredible, inspirational, beautiful and driven person", and urged people to keep making donations.

Claire Marshall reports.
