A MOTHER of four from Chrishall completed her fifth - and final - Flora London Marathon on Sunday.
Bridget Gough, 50, ran the gruelling 26miles in 4hr 51 min - her second fastest time.
Mrs Gough also raised £1,500 for the Barley-based charity, Khandel-light, which was started by her husband Dr Peter Gough.
