    A runner is braving Spain's heatwave to run 12 marathons in 12 days in memory of a teenager who was killed in Taunton.

    Liam Harrison sets off today from Seville and will cover 519 km before finishing in Salamanca.

    He's raising money for Think Amy, a road safety charity set up by the mum of Amy Hofmeister, who was killed in a car chase in 2011.

    As a close friend of the family, it's a cause close to his heart.
