Paralysed athlete Claire Lomas inspires Northampton pupils

A paralysed woman preparing to cycle the UK has been inspiring pupils at a Northampton school.

Claire Lomas was paralysed from the chest down in a riding accident.

She came to public attention when she took 17 days to finish the London Marathon wearing a special robotic suit.

She's now set to bike across the country to raise money for her charity Spinal Research.
