England's Jack Laugher won gold in the men's 3m springboard diving at the Commonwealth Games.

He led from his second dive and recorded 519.40 points to finish ahead of Canada's Philippe Gagne and Australia's James Connor to win his second gold medal on the Gold Coast.

Laugher also won gold in the 1m springboard when he retained his Commonwealth title on Wednesday.

Team-mate Lois Toulson - Laugher's girlfriend - won 10m platform bronze.

Malaysia's Pandelela Rinong Pamg needed a score of 68 to snatch third place from Toulson but could only manage 64 on her final dive.

Toulson finished behind Australia's Melissa Wu in first and Canada's Meaghan Benfeito in second.

The 18-year-old came fifth at the 2016 Rio Olympics but this was her first medal at the Commonwealth Games.

Compatriots Ross Haslam and Jack Haslam also came fourth and eighth respectively in the men's 3m springboard.

Scotland's James Heatly, who won bronze in the 1m springboard event, finished in fifth place, while Welsh teenager Aidan Heslop came 12th.

Laugher was a silver medallist in the 3m event in Glasgow four years ago but has dominated in his diving events his time around.

He will also compete in the synchronised 3m springboard final on Friday (12:04 BST) alongside Chris Mears - an event in which he won gold at the Olympics in Rio.

Fifteen-year-old Heslop was Wales' first Commonwealth Games diver for 20 years.
