Great Britain's Oliver Hynd has joined his brother Sam in the S8 400m freestyle final after coming second in heat two at the Aquatics Centre.

The Brit secured his place in the 400m final just minutes after his brother clinched a final spot with ease, leaving his competitors far behind.

While Hynd started off strong, he began to drift back slightly following the midway mark, which allowed his compatriot Tom Young to surge into the lead.

Young managed to maintain his lead and record a time of 4:34.16, with Hynd just behind him on 4:36.40.
