More than 30 people walked in memory of Ealing schoolboy Tom Clabburn on Sunday as part of the annual Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) London Bridges Walk.

''Team Tom" took part for a fifth year in a row, alongside more than 800 other walkers who crossed seven Thames bridges. The event passes by 12 London landmarks to raise awareness of the 12 young people a week who CRY say die from undiagnosed heart conditions.

Tom was 14 when he died in 2007.

Tom's father Paul Clabburn said: "We are very grateful that people make the effort to turn out year after year to support us and CRY. I'd also like to thank the sixth form students at Drayton Manor High School, Tom's old school, who raised more than £500 for CRY at their recent leavers' prom. We're planning to provide more free heart screenings for young people in Ealing in the autumn and the money they're donated goes a long way towards helping us to achieve that."
