Zara Phillips and Team GB take silver in eventing.
Great Britain have taken another team silver medal in the equestrian eventing competition at Greenwich Park.
Despite a strong performance, Tina Cook's single-fault showjumping round and the efforts of team-mates Zara Phillips, Nicola Wilson, William Fox-Pitt and Mary King was not enough to oust European champions and favourites Germany, who took gold. New Zealand clinched bronze.
The second-place prize means Britain is still seeking an elusive gold.
However, the silver gave Britain its 18th Olympic post-war eventing medal.
