Masie Summers-Newton has smashed a second world record on consecutive days at the 2018 World Para Swimming Allianz European Championships in Dublin.

Summers-Newton followed up Tuesday's SM6 200m individual medley success with another superb gold medal in the SB6 100m breaststroke.

She won in 1:33.63 to shave 0.29 seconds off her previous world record that she set in Sheffield in May.

Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds completed a British one-two in the final, claiming the silver medal in a time of 1:41.56.

Summers-Newton said: "It's not sunk in yet. I didn't expect to come here and break two world records. It's amazing and I'm so happy.

"When I first started swimming I just wanted to make the team, and it's become a dream to get to a Paralympics. That dream could still come, but just to represent Great Britain here is amazing."

Day three at Dublin also saw gold medals for Bethany Firth and Hannah Russell.

Firth won her second European gold of the championships in the S14 100m backstroke, taking the title in 1:04.23. Fellow Brit Jessica-Jane Applegate took silver in 1:07.38.

Meanwhile, Russell had to share her gold medal with Germany's Elena Krawzow following a tie in the S12 50m freestyle that saw both swimmers touch the wall in identical times of 27.94.

"I'm happy with that swim overall," said Russell. "It's a little bit weird having two gold medallists, but it's nice to share the podium with someone else. I had no idea how close we were until the race was over."

Firth got to within 0.18 seconds of her world record as she led Applegate home by more than three seconds.

"This season has been a mixture of ups and downs, so to get close to my world record, I’m so happy," she said. "The team is doing amazingly well and we're cheering each other on, it's a great atmosphere."

Jordan Catchpole set a new British record of 1:01.71 in the men's S14 100m backstroke as he claimed his second silver medal of the championships, while Toni Shaw swam a PB of 1:09.18 to take silver in the S9 100m butterfly.

There was also a bronze medal for Megan Richter, who clocked a PB of 1:42.86 to finish third in the SB7 100m breaststroke.

In the men's S12 50m freestyle final, Stephen Clegg set two new British records in one day. His second record, 24.79 in the final, earned him fifth overall in Europe.
