Kirsty Barr won Northern Ireland's fifth medal of the 2018 Commonwealth Games with silver in the women's trap, as Wales' Sarah Wixey took bronze.

Barr, 29, lost out to 2014 champion Laetisha Scanlan of Australia, with England's Abbey Ling in fourth.

Scotland's Seonaid McIntosh earlier won her second bronze medal of the Games - in the women's 50m rifle 3 positions.

England's Sam Gowin also finished with bronze as he came third in the rapid-fire 25m pistol.

Barr finished the trap final on 37 points, one behind Scanlan in the final series, as both survived four eliminations to reach the final round.

Northern Ireland's fifth medal came a day after Leon Reid was awarded bronze in the men's 200m following the disqualification of England's Zharnel Hughes.

McIntosh, 22, had already won a bronze medal in the women's 50m rifle prone on Thursday.

She is the third member of her family to win a Commonwealth Games shooting medal.

Her sister Jennifer, who finished eighth on Friday, won two golds in Delhi in 2010 and their mother Shirley won gold at Victoria 1994.

India earned a one-two in the women's 50m rifle 3 positions through Tejaswini Sawant and Anjum Moudgil.

Their 15-year-old compatriot Anish Bhanwala took the gold in the men's rapid-fire 25m pistol to become India's youngest Commonwealth Games medallist.
