Original Mountain Marathon Floods 

Several hundred people taking part in the Original Mountain Marathon in England's Lake District near Keswick, have been stranded by flooding and torrential rain. Competitors in the event are all experienced fell runners but within half an hour of the start conditions and the weather had deteriorated so badly that many runners made the decision to return to the start, it seems flooding came in so quickly that even they were lucky to get out of the car park.

BBC News website readers who took part in the race, sent their accounts, including video, get the full story and reports at the BBC News website.
