Marathon death girl ‘incredible’
THE family of a young woman who died while competing in the London Marathon described her today as “an incredible, inspirational, beautiful and driven person”.
Claire Squires, 30, collapsed in Birdcage Walk, near St James’s Park, on the final stretch of the 26.2-mile course on Sunday. Over £500,000 has been donated to her Justgiving page raising money for the Samaritans charity.
The family said in a statement: “Words cannot explain what an incredible, inspirational, beautiful and driven person she was.
“She was loved by so many and is dearly missed by all of us.”
They urged people to continue making donations.
