Dan Jarvis, the MP for Barnsley Central, is celebrating completing yesterday's London marathon in a very respectable three hours and forty six minutes.

Mr Jarvis took part in the event to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. He lost his first wife to the illness three years ago. Running alongside him was his father, who's previously taken part in more than a hundred marathons.
