Sinead and John Kerr brought the curtain down on their season with a career best finish of fifth at the World Figure Skating Championships in Turin.

The Scottish siblings rose to the occasion in Italy with season's bests in both the compulsory dance and original dance.

After a disappointing fifth place in January's European Championships and eighth in their second Winter Olympics in Vancouver, the Kerrs made amends as they collected their third season's best of the week with a score of 93.32.

The British couple are crowd favourites wherever they go and it was fitting that they danced last, finishing off a competition which saw Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir once again raise the bar of competitive ice dancing to add the world title to their Olympic crown.

The Kerrs' free dance wasn't as crisp as their first two routines, with less fluidity in the twizzles and lifts, but there were encouraging signs to suggest they can continue improving should they choose to carry on for another season.
