FANTASTIC support from crowds lining the London Marathon route kept Councillor Curtis going in hot conditions on Sunday - and he managed to complete the race in just under five hours.

"It wasn't my best running performance by a long way, but it is definitely the one I have enjoyed most," said Cllr Curtis, chairman of planning at Fenland District Council and a member of Cambridgeshire County Council, representing Whittlesey.

"It is hard to describe the lift you get from crowds like that. Taking part in the London Marathon is a memory to be relished."

"My time was longer that I expected, but I slowed right down in the second half, because of the heat."
