A FATHER-of-two who survived invasive surgery for a rare tumour in his neck is to run the London Marathon with his feeding tube.

Gary Taylor, 46, from Halifax, West Yorkshire, hopes that his bid to tackle the 26.2 mile race will show other people you can live ‘a relatively normal life’ despite needing to live with a feeding tube.

He said: ‘I want to do this to show people who are starting to tube feed that it isn’t the end of the world.

‘You will sometimes feel down. You will sometimes feel afraid and you will come across hurdles that you need to work around, but you can do anything you used to do.

‘I still work. I still play football and I’m running the London Marathon.’
