Stephen Cairns is finally presented with his medal by Steve Cram after his third place finish in the Kielder Marathon.

Mr Cairns, a constable with Lothian and Borders Police, was stunned after being told he had finished fourth – only to discover he had been beaten by cheat Rob Sloan, who had caught the bus for part of the race.

After an investigation, and a belated admission from the runner, Mr Cairns was promoted and awarded his medal by Olympic athlete and event director Cram.
