Coronavirus: Peterborough's Great Eastern Run cancelled

The Great Eastern Run half marathon has been cancelled - the second year in a row that the event has been hit a wall.

Peterborough City Council took the decision to halt the 2020 event - due to take place in October - because of disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Last year's race was cancelled as thousands of runners stood on the start line, because of a perceived bomb threat on one part of the 13.1-mile course through Peterborough.
