More than 40 devoted friends and relatives laced up their running shoes for the Sheffield Half Marathon in memory of boxer Scott Westgarth who died after winning a fight.

The group, all associated with Sheffield Boxing Centre where Scott trained, broke into song during the song in tribute to the 31-year-old.

Scott, of Penistone, collapsed in the changing room after beating Dec Spelman in an English title eliminator at The Dome in Doncaster and was taken to hospital where he died.

Scott worked as a chef at Sheffield Royal Victoria Holiday Inn and had just bought a house with his partner Natalie. He was also a fully qualified ski instructor and his points decision victory meant he was due to challenge for the English light-heavyweight title.
