British diver Grace Reid won a dramatic gold in the 3m springboard, snatching victory from team-mate and silver medallist Alicia Blagg with her final dive at the European Championships.

Reid, 22, entered the fifth round of dives in bronze position but scored 73.50 points to overhaul Blagg and win by less than two points in Glasgow.

"I don't know what I even scored in the final dive," said Edinburgh-born Reid.

"It's unreal. Happy doesn't cover it. It has been hard work this season."

The result takes Britain top of the diving table with 10 medals, four of them gold.

Earlier, Briton Lois Toulson won her second medal of the championships.

The 18-year-old and partner Matthew Lee took silver in the mixed synchronised 10m platform behind Russia's Nikita Shleikher and Iuliia Timoshinina.

Toulson hoped for a second gold in Glasgow having won the women's 10m event with Eden Cheng on Tuesday and despite leading after three of the five dives, she and Lee were beaten by less than two points.

Lee said: "It's a shame about the second-to-last dive. The Russians are quite strong but we're both happy with the performance."
