Former soldier completes his 100th marathon

Karl Hinett from Tipton has raised more than £30,000 after completing 100 marathons in two years.

Karl is a former soldier who served in Iraq in 2005. He was badly-burned after his armoured vehicle was petrol-bombed during a rescue operation.

The money he has raised will go to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, which provides specialist treatment to injured soldiers.
