World indoor champion Richard Kilty was disqualified for a false start in the 60m final on his indoor comeback at the Glasgow International Match.

The 25-year-old was competing indoors for the first time since he set a personal best of 6.49 seconds in winning 60m gold in Poland last March.

Kilty was representing Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the four nations meeting at the Emirates Arena.

Germany won the meet ahead of France with GB & NI third and Scotland fourth.

France's Emmanuel Biron won the 60m final in a time of 6.69.

The GB & NI team was captained by 400m runner Conrad Williams and the team had six senior debutants.

World junior silver medallist Jessica Judd won the 1500m in a time of 4:14.53, Kelly Massey took the 400m title in 52.95 and Serita Solomon set a personal best of 8.13 to claim victory in the 60m hurdles.

British Commonwealth Games pole vault silver medallist Luke Cutts was runner-up to Frenchman Jerome Clavier while 19-year-old Chris Kandu won the high jump with a personal best mark of 2.23.

Chris Tomlinson, 2008 World indoor long jump silver medallist, pulled out of the long jump after the first round with a hamstring injury.

The men's and women's 4x400m relays were both won by Britain.
