    England stunned overwhelming favourites Australia to record the greatest result in their history and win a first Commonwealth Games netball gold medal.

    Helen Housby scored in the final second to give England a 52-51 victory.

    Having staged a dramatic comeback to beat Jamaica in the semi-final, the Roses matched the hosts 25-25 at half-time of their first major final.

    But they shocked the home crowd by overturning a four-point deficit in the final quarter to claim a dramatic win.
