Bridge forces marathon map change

The route of Nottingham's marathon has had to be changed just weeks before the race due to a closed footbridge.

Runners usually stream across the Wilford suspension bridge in the last stretch towards the finish line in the Robin Hood Festival of Running.

But the bridge has been closed for urgent repairs so a new route has had to be found.

The full and half-marathon combined event will take place over the weekend of 13 and 14 September.
