After taking four wickets with his little-used off-spin to help Yorkshire dismiss Surrey for 195, Michael Vaughan was on the threshold of a century in both innings but he holed out off Jason Ratcliffe's first ball for 91.

Yorkshire are 344 runs ahead at Middlesbrough with five second-innings wickets in hand, one of them the prolific Michael Bevan, who is unbeaten on 88.

Lancashire's Graham Lloyd, son of the England coach, hit a career-best 227 not out and hit a county-record 11 sixes against Essex at Chelmsford. His first century was the fastest of the season coming from 70 deliveries, and his second came from one more ball.

Replying to Essex's 509 his side were struggling at 55 for 3 but with Steve Titchard (112no) Lloyd has put on 332 for the fourth wicket, a county record.

Ian Salisbury took five Durham wickets for no runs in 18 balls at Hove. They visitors lost their last eight wickets for 40 runs to trail by 393.

Mark Ramprakash stood his ground after being dismissed three runs short of a century at Lord's. After being ruled caught behind, he then turned to say something to the Glamorgan fielders before dragging himself off the field.
