A Midlothian man is primed to do his bit for a Diabetes charity at this year’s Edinburgh Marathon Festival.
Norrie Philp (39), of Wisp Green, Danderhall, was diagnosed with the disease seven years ago.
Indebted to nurses at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary who have helped him over the years, he plans to run a half marathon on May 26 to raise cash for Diabetes UK.
He said: “I don’t know what I would have done without them. It’s a horrific illness to have but the people at the hospital have been brilliant.“
