Rain in the north of the country meant that early lunch was taken on day three of this crucial LV=County Championship game at Headingley. The game delicately poised with Kent trailing the hosts by 45 runs with four first innings remaining. With lunch taken at midday, it is hopeful the rain will clear in the afternoon so that play can get underway in a game which both sides must win.
