An Army captain who collapsed while running the London Marathon has died.

Afghanistan veteran David Seath, 31, had a cardiac arrest three miles short of the finish, near the 23-mile mark, close to Southwark Bridge.

He received immediate medical attention and was taken to St Thomas' Hospital but died later.

Capt Seath's friends are planning to complete the marathon in his honour, starting at the place where he collapsed.

"We will walk as one, the final three miles of the marathon, starting where he fell," wrote Capt James Walker-McClimens on a fundraising page set up following his death.

The page has so far raised more than £64,000 for Help for Heroes. Capt Seath's own page has raised almost £40,000.
