Tom Daley heads up the England diving squad for the Commonwealth Games.
The Olympic medallist and the country's most high-profile diver is the leading name in the 15-strong squad selected ahead of Glasgow.
Daley – a Commonwealth gold medal winner in the 10 metre platform and synchro in Delhi four years ago –- is joined by Olympic finalists Chris Mears, Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow.
Mears is a member of the Southampton Diving Academy.
“I am really excited about the chance to compete at my second Commonwealth Games,” Daley said.
“Delhi was a great experience and to come home with two gold medals was a dream come true.”
It will be a third Games for the established pair of Barrow and Couch, while Mears will partner Jack Laugher in the 3m synchro.
