Great Britain went top of the group with victory over Croatia

Great Britain's women came from a goal down to beat Croatia 8-1 and win their third match in a row at the ice hockey World Championship.

Chrissy Newman bagged a hat-trick while Katie Henry scored twice in Dumfries.

Jodie Bloom, Natalie Aldridge and Katherine Gale completed the victory to send GB top of the Division 2A table with a 100% record.

The winners of the group will be promoted to Division 1B - two tiers below the top flight.

Rachel Serrell, who returned to action after missing Tuesday's win over Korea, said: "We made a slow start but we worked together well and came out on top."

GB return to action on Saturday against Poland at 20:00 BST.
