Amputee veteran's marathon run for Poppy Appeal

A soldier who lost an arm and a leg while serving in Afghanistan has completed a 31-mile run in the shape of a poppy to raise money for charity.

It took Ben McBean two days to complete the challenge and now he wants everyone else to run all the roads on the inside of his poppy outline.

In this report, Falklands veteran Simon Weston praises Mr McBean and what he has achieved.
