A dad raised hundreds of pounds for the hospital ward which cared for his son 15 years ago when he completed the Chester half marathon.

Phil Saunders travelled from Chester with his son Matthew to present the cheque for £676.92 to the Gosset Ward at Northampton General Hospital.

Fifteen years ago, Matthew was cared for on Gosset ward Phil said he wanted to thank the ward and show Matthew around the town where he was born.

The cash will buy an oxygen saturation monitor.
