Marathon Security Boost
8:00am 21st April 2013
Hundreds of extra police officers have been drafted-in to boost security for the London Marathon in the wake of the Boston bombings.
Three people died when pressure cookers packed with nails and ball bearings exploded at the finish line of the American race.
Thousands of runners will descend on our capital on Sunday, with many pledging to pay tribute and cross the line with hands over their hearts.
That is the hash tag that is doing the rounds on Twitter.
Pirate FM journalist Emma Carton is running for Children With Cancer: "It is a worry, because everyone who is dear to you is there watching you, but also I remember why I've chosen to do the Marathon again which is for an amazing charity to raise money for children who are suffering from cancer and nothing, not even a terrorist attack, is going to stop me from achieving that goal."
