Double European Cross Country champion Fionnuala Britton claimed yet another victory - this time in the Antrim International Cross Country.

Britton won in a time of 18 minutes and 17 seconds, with England's Louise Damon in second place 12 seconds back, while Kenya's Magdalyne Masai was third,  with Ireland's Linda Byrne in fourth place in a time of 18 minutes 48 seconds.

Only last week Britton won the Great Edinburgh Cross Country, with Byrne back in sixth.
