Read was last man out having made 21 from 60 balls with the White Rose dismissed for 428, a lead of 171 and 10 overs were left.

Lancashire ended the day at 16-1 Matthew Waite dismissing Jones lbw for 1.

The final day see’s Yorkshire in search of nine wickets with Lancashire currently trailing by 155.
