A man in his 30s has died at a half marathon event in Essex.
Police were called just after midday when the man collapsed at the finish of the Southend half marathon at Shoeburyness.
The man was taken to a medical tent in Ness Road, at the event organised by the Haven's Hospice Group, where staff tried to revive him.
There are no suspicious circumstances and a report will be prepared for the coroner, police said.
