Rajiv Popat reports from outside the memorial service held for Claire Squires.

Hundreds of mourners have gathered at the funeral of a woman from Leicestershire who died during the London Marathon.

Claire Squires collapsed less than a mile from the finishing line of this year's race.

Since her death, the public has donated more than a million pounds to the charity she was raising money for.
