British Prime Minister David Cameron, accompanied by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, has visited the Boston Marathon bombings memorial.

Cameron and Patrick visited the makeshift memorial that includes T-shirts, letters, running shoes and other items in the city's Copley Square early Tuesday morning.

The memorial grew in the wake of the April 15 explosions at the marathon finish line that killed three people and injured more than 260.
