Over a thousand people will jog around the Welsh capital wearing Santa suits today to raise money for British Heart Foundation Cymru.

They include a group of Cardiff Cadets jogging in memory of one of their members who died last year aged just 15, and a woman travelling from Liverpool to take part in memory of her sister who died of heart disease.

The 5k event starts and finishes at Cardiff Castle and aims to raise £40,000 for the charity.
