Cancer fundraiser Stephen Sutton will be remembered later today when a train is named after him at Birmingham International Station in his memory.

The Pendolino 390002 will be named 'Stephen Sutton' at a ceremony later this afternoon.

It's only the fourth time Virgin Trains has named a Pendolino train after a person, with the company viewing it as 'a fitting tribute to an incredibly inspiring young man'.

The teenager from Burntwood has raised almost £5m for the Teenage Cancer Trust this far and donations have continued to come in following his death in May of last year.
