Great North Run: Charities collect discarded clothing

Thousands of items of clothing discarded at the start line of the Great North Run have been donated to charity.

Volunteers filled about 700 bin bags with tops, jackets and bottoms left by the 57,000 people who took part in Sunday's event.

Jo Burns, of Gateshead-based Making Winter Warmer, told Newcastle City Council the group will hand out clothing to homeless people in the North East over the coming months.
