Two members of a British women's bobsled team are in hospital in Germany after crashing on a training run at a World Cup track for the British Championships.

Performance director Gary Anderson said driver Fiona Harrison, 29, had suffered a head injury and was under observation in hospital while brakewoman Serita Shone, 22, underwent surgery after fracturing her spine in Wednesday's crash in western Germany.

The pair were "receiving medical attention and their families have been informed," Anderson added.
