England completed a superb clean sweep of the medals at the Senior 6 Nations as Emma Vickers and Chris Doran won the singles titles.

Both finals were all-England affairs in Scotland, with Karina Le Fevre and David McBeath the beaten finalists – and the medals added to the golds that both the men and women had won on Saturday.

Both finals went to five but both by different means. Vickers was never behind as she took the odd-numbered sets to seal victory, while Doran twice levelled before taking the decider.

Vickers said: “It’s quite a big event – all the nations are playing and everyone wants to beat each other, so it’s obviously great to win all the events.

“We all played well and we all supported each other.”
