Sheffield Half Marathon: 'Community spirit' helped runners

6 April 2014 Last updated at 17:02 BST

Sheffield's Half Marathon has been cancelled due to a lack of water for runners, one of its organisers has said.

There were chaotic scenes at the starting point as a "significant number" of the 5,000 runners decided to run the route regardless.

Local journalist and spectator Charlotte Sidwick bought bottles of water for some of the runners.
