Inconsistent Daley beaten into second

World champion Tom Daley had to be content with second place on his return to 10m platform competition for the first time since the death of his father.

Daley produced an inconsistent performance as he was easily beaten by Peter Waterfield, who impressively defended his National Diving Championships crown in Leeds yesterday with a comfortable buffer of 59.45 points.

Daley led at the halfway stage but, after missing his fourth and fifth dives, just edged out Max Brick for second by 0.9 points.
