Triumphant Bethan finishes the Brighton Marathon unaided

Being part of a marathon has long been the dream of Bethan Griffiths, who has cerebral palsy.

The 22-year-old from from Stourbridge took part in the Brighton Marathon with the help of Becky Amor and Andy Woolway, from the National Star College in Gloucestershire.

They pushed her in an all-terrain wheelchair for 25 miles but she was determined to cross the finish line unaided.

Bethan wanted to take part in the race in memory of her mother, Amanda, who died of motor neurone disease last year.
