Sir Richard Branson has pledged that Claire Lomas, from Leicestershire, will receive a trophy for completing the London Marathon after organisers said she would not finish in time.

Claire was paralysed from the chest down following a horse-riding accident. She's been walking the London marathon in a robotic suit for more than two weeks.

Last week event organisers told her she wouldn't get a finishers medal even if she completed the course.
