Cancer fundraiser Stephen Sutton will be remembered later today when a train is named after him at Birmingham International Station in his memory.

The Pendolino 390002 will be named 'Stephen Sutton' at a ceremony later this afternoon.

It's only the fourth time Virgin Trains has named a Pendolino train after a person, with the company viewing it as 'a fitting tribute to an incredibly inspiring young man'.

The teenager from Burntwood has raised almost £5m for the Teenage Cancer Trust this far and donations have continued to come in following his death in May of last year.

Wing walker's emotional tribute to Stephen Sutton

Ninety-four-year-old dare-devil pensioner Tom Lackey from Solihull is gearing up for his 30th wing walk from Land's End to the Scilly Isles, in the name of teenage cancer sufferer Stephen Sutton.

The 19-year-old from Burntwood in Staffordshire lost his battle with the illness this week.

Mr Lackey is dedicating his latest stunt, scheduled for this Thursday, to Stephen. He told ITV News Central:

"He's done so much good and raised all this money and he would have done a wing walk. He always put his thumbs up in the air so when I do this one from Lands End to the Isles of Scilly I think I will put my thumbs up for him and imagine that he's with me."
