London Marathon Runners From Norfolk and Suffolk Say They're Determined To Take Part

Runners from Norfolk and Suffolk have told Heart events in Boston won't put them off running in this weekend's London marathon.

It's after two bombs went off during the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing three people.

It sparked an urgent review of security at the event in London on Sunday.

20-year-old Kassandra Bailey from Norwich, who is running for eating disorders charity Beat, says she is determined to carry on as normal.
