Dereham: Former Serviceman In Marathon

A former serviceman from Dereham in Norfolk who had to have one of his leg's amputated below the knee after serving in Afghanistan is telling Heart how he's feeling before running today's London Marathon

25-year-old Craig Richardson was given a prostetic leg after the injury in 2008.

He's now running today's London Marathon for the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation and their charity Sport and Light Appeal who help disabled children and adults get back into sport.

It's after the work he has been doing with the charity.
