But Durham slumped to 64 for 7 before the close, with their top score being Jon Lewis' unbeaten 19. Jon Moss took 3 for 11 and the wicketkeeper Luke Sutton five catches.
An eighth-wicket stand of 198 between Andre Adams and James Middlebrook enabled Essex to put Leicestershire under pressure at Grace Road.

Middlebrook weighed in with 92 as Essex recovered from 108 for 7 to 322 all out. Essex then maintained the initiative as Leicestershire slipped to 64 for 3 before the close.
