The Conservative leader will hear a rousing rendition of Jerusalem, sung by the chart-topping Military Wives Choir before the teams of Royal Marines head off around the streets of London to break a speed march world record.

The two teams of Royal Marines will raise around £50,000 for the Royal Marines Association as they run a 26.5 mile course in under four hours and 19 minutes.
