British team-mates Lois Toulson and Robyn Birch finished fifth and sixth respectively in the 10m platform. "We're both very pleased with silver," Reid told BBC Sport. "Gold would have been nice, but the Germans were too strong today."I'm really pleased this event has gone so well - it's a nice ease in for me when I've got individual and women's synchro to go - so hopefully it'll get even better for me."
