The family of a man who died after a half marathon are planning to run the race in his memory next year.
Kevin Paterson from Seaham was apparently fit and healthy and an experienced runner, but he collapsed after crossing the finish line last Sunday.
His parents and sisters are now fundraising in his name and have already raised more than two thousand pounds for charity. They say even if they have to walk round, they'll finish the race like he did.
