A TELEPHONE operator is to run the London Marathon as part of the Mr Men and Little Miss children's charity team.

Rebecca Blake, 41, from Bromley, will run the Flora London Marathon on April 13 in aid of the UK charity Children with Leukaemia because her daughter died of the disease.

Over 1,000 will raise money for the charity including six runners in Mr Men and Little Miss costumes.

Leukaemia is the most common form of childhood cancer with children under five accounting for half of all cases.
