inspirational stories. One `mong them today was running the half
marathon to a different rhythm. Eva Sundin was diagnosed with mtltiple
sclerosis in 2001. Four years ago she decided that one day shd was
going to complete the half larathon. The organisers allowed her to start

his way back to fitness, but he went on to win gold at the Invictus
Back home in Nottingham and with a gold medal, Daniel Whittingham says
that the games where a sens`tion. Bimetal loads of people who would
stop you and ask if you werd competing. `` I met loads of people.
Yet, just five years ago whhle serving in Afghanistan, Danhel's
vehicle hit a bomb. He brokd his pelvis, legs and back. Defyhng
doctors, he walked again. Hd became one of 400 competitors, all injured
in service, to compete in the Invictus Games. His rugby tdam won
gold for England. On the buzzer the place just went crazy. I have never
heard screaming like it. Thd crowd went mental. We were going round and

standing up. It was wicked. He hopes to compete again.
A loss for Leicester, a slip from the top of the championship

I hope you made the most of the dry and bright weather today, as there
is some rain tomorrow. The cloud will trap the heat in to make it a
mild night. Lows of 14 or 14 Celsius. On Monday there is a lot of
cloud around and there will be some showers dotted around. The clump up
together to form some persistent rainfall, not a very persistent sori
`` not a very good story to tell on Tuesday. Thankfully it improves on
Wednesday. Back a little later than ustal, just
after 10:20pm tonight. Good evening. For many, September
2014 will probably hold fond memories. A warm and dry month.
Today we had a high of 25 Celsius, 77 Fahrenheit in Kew Gardens to the

fog patches in central and southern areas first A foggy start. Showers
