Marathon girl's family 'amazed' by donations

The family of a woman who died during the London Marathon say they had been "amazed" and "incredibly moved" by donations made in her memory, as the amount pledged to her chosen charity approached £700,000.

30-year-old Claire Squires collapsed in Birdcage Walk, near St James's Park, on the final stretch of the 26.2-mile course on Sunday. She died with the finishing line only one bend away, after 25 miles of the marathon.
