No such thing as a free lunch?

Today is your last chance to grab a free lunch from the Run For Your Bun cafe in Covent Garden.

The pop-up offers customers a free dish if they first take part in a six minute micro-workout.

The cafe is part of a campaign to encourage people to be more active during the working day.
