Track cyclist Emily Kay has won Great Britain's first medal of the European Championships with silver in the women's 10km scratch race in Glasgow.

Kay, 22, moved near to the front with two laps remaining but was unable to catch Dutch rider Kirsten Wild.

Laura Kenny goes in the women's team pursuit final (18:52 BST) but her husband Jason failed to reach the medal races in the men's team sprint.

Britain will race Germany for bronze in the men's team pursuit (18:31 BST).

The quartet of Ethan Hayter, Charlie Tanfield, two-time Olympic champion Steven Burke and Kian Emadi were made to pay for a quick start in their bid to qualify for the gold-medal race as they were overhauled by Italy late on in the 4,000m race.

There was disappointment for Great Britain in their team sprint heat against Poland when Rio 2016 gold medallist Philip Hindes suffered misfortune at the start.

"He had a little wheel slip and, typical luck, Phil then hits a foam pad, making a bad situation worse," six-time Olympic champion Kenny told BBC Sport. "But there was nothing any of us could do.

"You've just got to go full gas and hope for the best. It's just one of those things really, it's unfortunate, but it goes pear-shaped very quickly."

Earlier, Katy Marchant and Lauren Bate-Lowe went out of the women's team sprint at the qualification stage.

Laura Kenny and the Great Britain team pursuit team compete for gold later on Friday
