Olympic champion Katie Archibald won her third medal of the National Track Championships in Manchester with gold in the scratch race on day two.

The 23-year-old - a team pursuit gold medallist at Rio 2016 - had already won the individual pursuit gold and sprint bronze on day one.

The Scottish rider then saw her brother John win the men's points race.

There were also golds for Jack Carlin (men's sprint), Jess Crampton (keirin), and Joe Truman (1km time trial).

Scot Carlin beat Welshman Lewis Oliva 2-0 in the final with Bolton's Matt Rotherham taking bronze.

Archibald pipped Ellie Dickinson in second with Emily Nelson third, while brother John capped a memorable night for the family with gold in the 40km points race ahead of Ethan Hayter and Fred Wright.

Paralympic champions Lora Fachie and Louis Rolfe won golds in the BVI tandem pursuit and mixed pursuit respectively.

Sunday is the final day of the Championships.
