Dorothy House nurse Natalie Jones had a Spam-tastic time when she completed the London Marathon... dressed as a tin of Spam.

She said: “It was brilliant. The crowd was amazing and there was lots of Spam singing and people calling out to me.

“I felt good all the way round and didn’t hit the wall.”

Mrs Jones, 40, from Yatton Keynell, near Chippenham completed the 26.2 mile course in 4hrs 15mins, 58 seconds and was delighted to beat the time she did 13 years ago, when she ran in normal running gear, by 15 minutes.

She hopes to have raised about £1,500 for Dorothy House Hospice Care, Winsley, where she works as a specialist nurse.
