The Plymouth Leander swimmer set a Championship record 55.22 to take victory in the final ahead of training partner Grace Vertigans in 55.93.

Vertigans returned to the podium later in the session as she tied for 50m Backstroke silver with ESSA teammate Brittany Horton (City of Birmingham) on 30.09.
