Funeral for London Marathon runner Claire Squires

The funeral of the runner who died near the finish line of the London Marathon has taken place at a church in Leicestershire.

More than £1m has been raised for the charity since 30-year-old Claire Squires' death on 22 April.

Hundreds of people were at the service to celebrate the life of the hairdresser, from North Kilworth, at the parish church of St Andrew's.

Her family has asked for donations to be made to Rainbows, in Loughborough.

Claire Marshall reports.
