English duo claim second gold

Sophie Thornhill and Helen Scott celebrated a second tandem triumph at Glasgow 2014, claiming gold in the 1,000-metre B2 time-trial.

Eighteen-year-old para-cyclist Thornhill and her pilot Scott followed up their day-one victory in the B2 sprint with another rousing performance at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

Just as they did on Thursday, Thornhill and Scott nudged Scottish favourites Aileen McGlynn and Louise Haston into silver with a time of one minute 0.87 seconds.
