MPs to run London Marathon

Two local MPs are running the London Marathon this year. Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor and Labour MP for Morley and Outwood, and Greg Mulholland, the Liberal Democrat MP for Leeds North West.

Mr Balls is running for the charities Whizz-Kidz and Action for Stammering Children. Mr Mulholland is running for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and is currently cycling back from the Paris Marathon as part of the eight day challenge.
