That's the end of the sixth round of the County Championship, with Durham, Warwickshire and Gloucestershire the only winners, as five games end in draws.
Batting plaudits go to Essex's Nick Browne and Joe Denly of Kent for career-best double centuries, Durham's Scott Borthwick for hitting two hundreds in the same game, and Samit Patel, who enlivened the final day with a breathtaking 124 off 82 balls for Notts.
Middlesex spinner Ollie Rayner produced the best bowling figures of 6-79, but there were also five-fors by Tom Bailey (Lancashire), Barry McCarthy (Durham) and Ravi Bopara (Essex).
There is lots more cricket to enjoy this week via the BBC Sport website and Sport app.
We will have full coverage of the first Test between England and Sri Lanka at Headingley, which starts at 11:00 BST on Thursday, and the opening games in this summer's T20 Blast on Friday evening.
Warwickshire are the new leaders of Division One following their victory over Notts at Trent Bridge, but only by one point from last summer's champions Yorkshire. Lancashire are five points behind the Bears despite losing at Durham, who move up to fourth - and both have a game in hand on the leaders.
Essex continue to set the pace in Division Two, with two wins and three draws so far, and they are 18 points clear of Kent, who climb above Leicestershire into second following their draw at Northampton. Defeat by Gloucestershire at Bristol leaves Glamorgan on the bottom of the table.

Durham won by 73 runs

The match comes to an end at Taunton after Jack Leaning collects a boundary off Jim Allenby. He finishes 29 not out with partner Liam Plunkett on 20. defending champions Yorkshire are still not firing on all cylinders and they take nine points from the game, while Somerset - for whom James Hildreth made 166 earlier in the match - collect 12.
Paceman Jamie Overton takes 3-26 from 17 impressive overs in Yorkshire's second innings, with England batsmen Adam Lyth and Gary Ballance among his victims.
Interesting stat arising out of Samit Patel's brilliant knock for Notts today (in a losing cause)...
The next round of Championship matches start on Sunday.
In Division One, it will be Hampshire v Notts, Lancashire v Surrey, Middlesex v Somerset and Warwickshire v Durham.
Division Two leaders Essex travel to Glamorgan, while Derbyshire host Kent, Gloucestershire take on Northants and Leicestershire play Worcestershire.
It looks like defending champions Yorkshire will be leaving Taunton with a draw. Somerset have just six overs left to pick up the four wickets they need. Jack Leaning is 22 not out, Liam Plunkett has seven.
Hamish Rutherford (68) and Chesney Hughes (66 not out) help themselves to centuries as rain robe the final day of any excitement at Chelmsford. Just 24 overs are bowled before a halt is called, with Division Two leaders Essex taking 11 points and Derbyshire eight.
Hughes, who returned to the crease after retiring ill during day three, has now scored 569 runs in five games at an average of 113.80.
Adil Rashid prods forward is caught in the slips after facing 30 balls without scoring. Yorkshire, 152 behind, have 10.4 overs to survive.
Like a scene in a western movie, Samit Patel goes down with all guns blazing at Trent Bridge as Warwickshire earn their first win of the season to go top of Division One. Patel is last man out, caught off Chris Wright (3-23), after hitting eight sixes and 12 fours in his 124 off 82 balls.
Apart from Patel, Brendan Taylor (26) was the only other batsman to reach double figures in the Notts innings, which began disastrously as they slumped to 25-5.
Worcestershire have to settle for a draw after striving might and main to force a final-day victory after asking Sussex to follow-on at New Road. Ollie Robinson (29*) and Stu Whittingham play out the final six overs before the teams shake hands - 13 points for Worcestershire, nine for Sussex.
This is simply astonishing batting by Samit Patel - Chris Gayle couldn't be any more destructive. Three more sixes come off Jeetan Patel's latest over as Samit moves on to 124 not out, and pinches the strike off the final delivery. Another 54 needed by Notts.
Samit Patel completes a superb 68-ball hundred with a six - the fifth of his innings - but Jackson Bird departs in the next over, bowled by Chris Wright. Notts still need 73 to win as Harry Gurney joins Patel.
BBC Wales' Nick Webb:
"Gloucestershire claim their first win of the season after a remarkable Glamorgan collapse, losing eight wickets for 33 just before tea.
"Graeme van Buuren, Craig Miles and Jack Taylor ran through the visitors' batsmen after an opening stand of 87.
"Despite some belated resistance from David Lloyd and Graham Wagg and a weather hold-up, Gloucestershire took the final wicket of Lloyd (20) with more than an hour to spare as Taylor finished with 4-16."
Having trailed on first innings, this has been a fine effort by Gloucestershire, who are one wicket away from victory as injured Graham Wagg's gallant innings comes to an end when he becomes off-spinner Jack Taylor's third victim.
Glamorgan need 126 to win - they have enough time to do it, but with last man Michael Hogan now at the crease it would be quite some feat if they manage it.
This has been a fairly undistinguished rearguard action by Yorkshire, for whom Gary Ballance is the latest man to go. Jack Leaning and Adil Rashid are now together with 17 overs still possible.
This is some innings by Samit Patel, who smashes namesake Jeetan for three sixes in one over. He has 95 from just 58 balls and has provided some rich entertainment following the weather hold-up earlier in the day. Notts still need another 83 for victory.
Durham secure their first Championship win of the summer as Graham Onions (2-65) bowls last man Simon Kerrigan for two. Liam Livingstone is left unbeaten on 60 as the Red Rose county pay the price for a top-order slump earlier in the day as they went from 94-2 to 97-5 in the space of three overs.
Brydon Carse (3-38) and James Weighell (a career-best 3-45) take the main bowling plaudits for the north-east county, who collect 23 points, with six for previously unbeaten Lancashire.
Is there still time for Worcestershire? Matt Henry takes his fourth wicket - but Sussex are 183 ahead and the overs are running out for a fourth-innings run-chase.
Off-spinner Jeetan Patel strikes straight after tea, dismissing Brett Hutton to complete a wicket maiden. Namesake Samit is still there at the other end on 71, but Notts require another 108.
Keaton Jennings has very good reflexes and he pulls off another short-leg catch to end a 56-run stand for Lancashire's ninth wicket - and give James Weighell his third success.
Liam Livingstone has 55 not out, but it will be an amazing performance if he and last man Simon Kerrigan can score the 81 needed for victory by the visitors.
I imagine everything that can be crossed has been crossed in the Gloucestershire dressing room in the hope that this is only a passing shower. They need two wickets, Glamorgan need 127 runs - with David Lloyd 20 not out and Graham Wagg, batting despite an arm injury, on 15.
BBC Radio Derby's Dave Fletcher:
"Play has resumed at Chelmsford under slate grey skies with 31 overs to play in the day.
"That's how long Derbyshire have to survive - but expect a 5pm handshake."
Yorkshire skipper Andrew Gale is caught at short mid-on and the defending champions are wobbling at Taunton. They are still 178 behind and Somerset are pressing hard.
BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Sport
"All results still possible at Trent Bridge though sadly the threat of rain looks favourite.
"Having finally got on halfway through the day Warwickshire made an early charge for victory with two wickets in two balls from Keith Barker.
"But Samit Patel has taken the fight to the Bears with an attacking innings to keep Notts in the game.
"At tea, Warwickshire need three more wickets, Notts need 108 runs."
Notts take 16 from a Rikki Clarke over at Trent Bridge, including a six to mid-wicket by Samit Patel, but Brendan Taylor goes four balls later. They need another 113 to win - Warwickshire need four wickets.
"If all goes well and the weather holds off, Paul Collingwood's decision to declare and set Lancashire a target should end in his side's first win.
"At tea the visitors are 237-8, still needing 88 to win and with about 35 overs left to come. However, in 2012 they beat Durham in a rearguard action here with four overs to spare and at eight wickets down.
"This is not over yet. Kyle Jarvis (24) and Liam Livingstone (52) have added 49 for the ninth wicket so far, while Simon Kerrigan, who is next in, made 48 in the first innings. This could be a nervy final session."
BBC Wales' Nick Webb reports;
"Collapse of the season from Glamorgan as Gloucestershire moved to the brink of their first win of the season.
"After an opening stand between Mark Wallace and Jacques Rudolph, Graeme van Buuren spun out three victims, seamer Craig Miles took the next three and spinner Jack Taylor took two in an over just before tea.
"Spectacular stuff after what had been a closely-contested affair for the previous three-and-a-half days."
BBC Radio Nottingham commentator
"Still could be a nip and tuck finish at Trent Bridge, where Notts have moved on to 88-5.
"Keith Barker removed Greg Smith and Riki Wessels in successive deliveries, but Samit Patel has led the counter magnificently, racing to 52 not out from only 37 balls. Notts need a further 135 from 32 overs."
Lancashire have plenty of overs left to score the remaining 112 runs, but can they keep the Durham attack out? Liam Livingstone has 38 not out, with Kyle Jarvis on 16 - and only first-innings nightwatchman Simon Kerrigan to come.

The odds were on a draw at The Oval after Surrey's openers batted out the final 45 overs on Tuesday, but speculation is unnecessary as the weather prevents any play on the final day.
Middlesex - who have now drawn all five games so far - take 10 points and Surrey nine.
Only 11 overs are possible on the final day at Wantage Road. Kent's Joe Denly is caught in the deep off Rob Keogh for 36, having made an unbeaten double hundred in the first innings, before bad light forces the players from the field and the end follows soon after as the heavens open. Daniel Bell-Drummond finishes 69 not out as both sides take 11 points.
Worcestershire turn to Daryl Mitchell's occasional medium-pace and it proves an inspired move as Harry Finch offers a return catch in his first over. He faced 100 balls and hit seven fours - but now Ollie Robinson is out there with Ben Brown and Sussex are still 134 behind with only three wickets left.
