Olympian marathoner Tommy Hughes is to be given a civic reception by Magherafelt District Council in recognition of his long running career.

Councillor Sean McPeake proposed giving the Maghera man a reception at the council’s meeting on Tuesday night.

He said Hughes had run more than 50 marathons across the world and had won, at the age of 54, the Walled City Marathon in Derry last year.
