Jubilant scenes for the Red Rose, who needed four wickets in the final session but were held up first by Dom Bess and Harry Duke, then Bess and Jordan Thompson, the seventh- and eighth-wicket pairs eating up more than 40 overs. But Lancashire kept asking the right questions, Luke Wood got rid of Duke and then Saqib Mahmood at the end went bang-bang to complete a memorable five-for, leaving his good mate Matt Parkinson to finish it off. Yorkshire were six-and-a-bit overs from salvaging a draw, but that'll mean little now. Paul Edwards' report should be worth waiting for, so stick around for that - in the mean time, Leicestershire are closing in on a stunning win over Middlesex, chasing 378 in the fourth innings

W
Parkinson to Bess, OUT

flighted legbreak, Bess defends and the ball squirts to slip, where Livingstone is low to scoop the ball... did it carry? YES!! Steve O'Shaughnessy consults with Wharf and then gives it, and Lancashire have won the Roses clash in the last half hour of day four! First time Lancashire have beaten Yorkshire at Old Trafford in a four-day game in 21 years, according to Adam Collins on Sky

W
Mahmood to Coad, OUT

length ball, Coad fiddles at it - given! Mahmood barely appealed, but everyone behind the stumps was up, and so was Alex Wharf's finger! Ben Coad does a double-take, but has to depart. Yep, not happy with the decision, he whacks the boundary protectors on his way past. Drama!
