Teacher completes London Marathon with broken leg

A man finished the London Marathon on Sunday despite breaking his leg in the process.

Adam Cunningham, a teacher from Devon, ran the marathon to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

He was on track for a race time of three hours and 26 minutes until he side-stepped on a stray water bottle, 850m from the finish line.

Mr Cunningham shuffled on his bottom to cross the line with help from marshals who protected him from runners.
