Parliament repeals controversial legislation and PM quits in moves opposition says are "small steps to victory".

Organisers of the London Marathon have said all runners who had a place in this year’s race will be contacted on Friday to inform them of the decision to postpone the event until 4 October.

The marathon, which had been due to take place on 26 April, attracts about 40,000 runners each year.

Hugh Brasher, event director, said: “The world is in an unprecedented situation grappling with a global pandemic of Covid-19 and public health is everyone’s priority.

“We know how disappointing this news will be for so many – the runners who have trained for many months, the thousands of charities for which they are raising funds and the millions who watch the race every year.
