More than 30 runners from our region were taking part in yesterday's Boston Marathon.
While some had completed the course when two explosions occurred near the finishing line, many were still running at the time.
Darren Foy, 40, from Southampton and his wife Sandra and their two children missed the explosions by just 30 minutes after he finished the marathon in three and half hours.
He said: "We were on our way home when we heard something had happened and I was getting messages like 'are you Ok?' which I never get. It's all quite shocking really."
