England secured victory in the second international against Jamaica after power failure ended the match early.

Anna Mayes' side were leading 55-47 with one minute 15 seconds left when a power cut occurred inside the National Indoor Sports Centre in Kingston.

The umpires subsequently declared the match as a result, levelling the series at 1-1, after Jamaica won the opener 56-47 on Saturday.

The decider will take place on Wednesday at 00:30 GMT.

England lost to Jamaica in the bronze medal match at this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
