Michael Dallard from Long Eaton had been training for the London Marathon this weekend after receiving a place through his employer.

But the entry was unexpectedly removed from him due to involvement with ongoing industrial action. 

Leaving him angry but undeterred, Michael is undertaking his own personal marathon around East Midlands Airport on Sunday to raise money for local charities.

The fundraising page is online for people to support him, and you can listen again to his interview with Paul Stacey on the Erewash Sound Breakfast Show below.
