Will Sharman, Ashley Bryant, Nick Miller, Laura Samuel and Laura Weightman continued England's track and field success at the Commonwealth Games by all claiming silver in Glasgow.

Sharman finished an agonising second behind gold medallist Andrew Riley from Jamaica in the men's 110m hurdles while Samuel had to settle for silver behind Kimberly Williams in the women's triple jump.

Bryant meanwhile stormed into silver medal position in the decathlon competition after finishing third in the final 1500m event, and jumped above Kurt Felix from bronze medal position.

And Miller - the US based athlete - claimed silver in the men's hammer before Weightman clung on to second in the women's 1500m to crown another stunning evening.

The triple achievement comes after Adam Gemili, Bethany Woodward and Dan Greaves all medalled across the first two days at Hampden Park and lays the foundations for a successful final few days of the Games for Team England.

Despite winning England another silver on the track, Sharman will surely be feeling pensive after leading until the final stages in the 110m hurdles final.

The 29 year old led with 30m remaining but clipped the eighth hurdle and allowed Riley, who qualified fastest for the final, to come through after a strong finish and continue Jamaica's dominance on the track. Lawrence Clarke finished eighth.

The women's 10,000m earlier saw England's Kate Avery beat Scottish counterpart Beth Potter in a race dominated by the Kenyan trio spearheaded by eventual gold medallist Joyce Chepkirui.

Kelly Massey played second fiddle in a classic women's 400m final, finishing in seventh as Jamaican enjoyed a clean sweep of the podium with Stephanie McPherson taking gold.

Martyn Rooney will be confident of adding a Commonwealth medal to his collection in the men's 400m on Wednesday after winning his heat and qualifying second fastest ahead world and Olympic champion Kirani James.

In the women's heptathlon England pair Jessica Taylor and Jess Tappin are in fourth and sixth position going into the second day of competition.
