Young athletes continued to shine as Dina Asher Smith, 19, and Chijindu Ujah, 20, won their respective 60 metres titles.

Jenny Meadows won her seventh British indoor 800 metres title as she continues her comeback.

Lawrence Clarke put two years of injury behind him to take the 60 metres hurdles.

In her first indoor race, Emelia Gorecka took a very competitive 3000 metres in 9:06.27, Jess Judd finishing third and Hannah England sixth.
