A Norfolk charity has appealed for running fans and enthusiasts to take on the sport's biggest annual challenge in the name of charity.

East Anglia's Children's Hospice (EACH) has opened its registration for the London Marathon which is taking place again next April.

The charity has a small number of places for the 26.2-mile event and this year they were supported by 15 runners, some of whom found places through the public ballot.

Among them was David Taylor who ran in a flamingo costume in memory of the tough time his family endured four years ago when they lost their son.

Jude was born by C-section after doctors discovered he had half a heart and he was taken to Great Ormond Street Hospital's Flamingo Ward where he had surgery at just five days old.
