Have your say

For the vast majority of swimmers it was their first time competing as individuals in a 50 metre pool, with all acquitting themselves very well.

Indeed, there was little sign of nerves as 12-year-old Shannon Lamb led the way with a gold, silver and two bronze medals.

Amelia Ayling was close behind with a trio of medals in the under-11 age category, including silver and a brace of bronzes. 

Evelyn Hall claimed gold and silver in the same age group. 

Ten-year-old Grace Goddard grabbed silver with Mary Edwards, 12, completing the girl medallists with a bronze.

The only boy medallist was Thomas Larby, with the 11-year-old earning silver.
