Inquest into death of London marathon runner underway

The inquest into the death of a Leicestershire woman who died while running in the London Marathon last April is underway.

Hairdresser Claire Squires' boyfriend says he was unaware of any previous health concerns she may have had.

Claire died a mile from the finish line at last year's marathon in April.

She aimed to raise £500 for the Samaritans but the total jumped to more than £1 million following public support after her death.
