That about concludes our online coverage from Leeds. Look out for more in tomorrow's Adver. With four gold medals and one bronze from this weekend, Swindon has plenty to celebrate.
Gray was fourth in 59.87 seconds. Very good championships for her overall having made three finals and won the 200m fly.
No medal for Gray in the 200m fly. Jeanette Ottesen Gray wins it in 58.99. Alys Thomas gets a PB for silver (59.62) and Siobhan-Marie O'Connor also gets a PB (59.63) for bronze.
Jazz Carlin is going to finish this week as the joint-most decorated swimmer with three golds, just as an aside. Joe Roebuck managed the same feat.
Can she follow up her 200m gold with another medal?
Tilly Gray imminent in the 100m fly final...
No gold for Turner, but being in heavy training I suspect he will be more than happy with that. Anthony Ervin triumphed in 49.21 ahead of Sebastiaan Verschuren (49.47) with Turner in third, making him the top Brit, incidentally (50.33).
Three more finals and then Turner goes.
Grant Turner is up next in the final of the 100m free. Bit of a wait first, though.
Jazz wanted to rebuild her confidence after the disappointment of last year. This must have done her self-belief the power of good.
That's a third gold medal out of three for Jazz Carlin. What a super few days she is having. The Swindon star clocks 4:07.14 to lead in Swindon-born Hannah Miley, who ends up with silver in 4:09.30, which is a PB for her.
Hannah Miley and Jazz Carlin are not far off competing in the 400m freestyle final. Carlin is after her third gold of the championships don't forget.
THIS SERVICE WILL RESUME AT 5.45PM.
That concludes our coverage this morning. Don't forget to join us from 5.45pm when our local swimmers contest three finals.
Well, there is no sign of Miley at the starting blocks. She seems to be sitting this one out.
One remaining race in terms of local interest this morning, as Swindon-born Miley races in heat four of the 200m back. This will be her 12th race in four days.
DOUBLE COMMONWEALTH GOLD MEDALLIST ROSS DAVENPORT ON TILLY GRAY
She is having a fantastic championships after winning the 200m fly. She must have so much confidence at the moment and maybe she can go under the minute barrier (in the 100m fly) tonight. Speaking to the coaches at Loughborough, she came back with so much determination in September and really cracked on with the work.
Gray has made the final as the sixth-fastest swimmer in 1:00.51 with Denmark's Jeanette Ottesen Gray the fastest qualifier in 59.08. Its a tough field in the final with the Netherlands' Ranomi Kromowidjojo and Siobhan-Marie O'Connor also set to compete.
Here we go.
The 100m fly heats are underway and Gray races in the fifth and final heat.
Turner is through to tonight's final and will be among the favourites to take gold. The former Swindon Tigershark qualified third-fastest with Sebastiaan Verschuren the quickest in 49.71 seconds. He was the only swimmer to go sub-50, Renwick was the second-fastest qualifier.
DOUBLE COMMONWEALTH GOLD MEDALLIST ROSS DAVENPORT ON GRANT TURNER
"I do think the likes of Grant Turner are the future of this event (100m free) and hopefully they can crack on."
Robbie Renwick wins it in 50.83 seconds with Turner one hundredth of a second behind in second place.
Kane Haggett leads at halfway.
Turner is up. Here we go.
The 100m free heats are underway and Turner is in heat four. He was the fastest 100m freestyler in Britain last year and had a cracking swim in the 4x100m relay at the Olympics.
Don't forget to keep an eye on this liveblog from 5.45pm tonight when we will bring you coverage of the finals, at which there should be significant Swindon involvement. And tweet throughout the day using #swimadver on Twitter.
After the heats of the men's 200m IM and the women's 50m breast, Turner, Gray and Miley are all in action in quick succession in the 100m free, 100m fly and 200m back respectively.
Carlin and Miley are comfortably into tonight's final. Matthews was the fastest qualifier for the final with Miley second and Carlin third.
Hannah Miley, who was born in Swindon, has just rattled out a 4:13.71 to win the last heat in a personal best time.
Swindon's Jazz Carlin looks good to make the final of the 400m free. She came second in the penultimate heat behind Sasha Matthews. Carlin timed in at 4:13.85 while Matthews clocked 4:13.24.
It's the final day of the British Gas Swimming Meet. Let's have some heats to kick us off.
