Elsewhere, Holly Hibbot, 17, won the 400m freestyle as she held off Olympic silver medallist Jazz Carlin, 26, for her first senior British title.

And Max Litchfield won his second gold in the 200m individual medley.

The 22-year-old was adding to the 400m individual medley gold he won at Sheffield's Ponds Forge on Thursday.

Hannah Miley, 27, won the women's 200m individual medley, while Commonwealth champion Georgia Davies, 26, won the women's 50m backstroke.
