Alex Smith from Hull was less fortunate in the hammer final. Taking inspiration from his dad, a former Commonwealth winner, he sent it out over 70 metres with his first throw. That held him in second place for a while but eventually he fell just short finishing out of the medals in fourth place.

Elsewhere, John Lane from Sheffield, was in medal contention in the decathlon until the javelin. Despite a personal best throw he had too much to do in the 1500 metres final event where he finished ninth leaving him fourth overall.

Lincoln's defending Commonwealth shooting champion Aaron Heading had to settle for silver this time in the men's trap.

Joe Roebuck from Rotherham finished in sixth in the 200 metres medley in the pool.
