UPDATE: Burnham pensioner, 70, completes two marathons in six days

A Burnham-On-Sea pensioner has run two marathons in six days to raise cash for charity.

Sue Nicholls, 70, completed the London Marathon on Sunday in a time of 3 hours, 58 minutes and 26 seconds.

Just six days earlier, she ran the Boston Marathon in America in a time of four hours and 40 seconds.

Sue has raised £1,800 for Cancer Research and told "The second marathon was hard work but I was determined to do it."

"I had brilliant support along the route from family and friends. It was a phenomenal feeling to complete the second marathon and I thank everyone in Burnham for their wonderful support and encouragement."

Her son Alan Tilley, who lives in Berrow, told "We are all inspired by her. She's such an amazing person who is proving that age is no barrier!"
