Great Britain's Louise Watkin, Claire Cashmore and Stephanie Millward are safely into the women's SM9 200m medley final.

Great Britain's Louise Watkin and Claire Cashmore have secured their places in the women's individual SM9 200m medley final.

The pair took a strong start in the first leg of the race but it was Watkin who blasted out of the blocks along with Ellie Cole of Australia.

Cashmore kept hot on their heels and by the final leg of the race it was a head-to-head contest between the two Brits after the pair left their opponents behind in the water.

Watkin managed to touch the end of the pool first with a time of 2:39.21 with Cashmore just behind in 2:39.75. The duo's compatriot Stephanie Millward also made the final after finishing second in her heat in 2:38.47.
