No play was possible on the third day of Middlesex's County Championship game against Somerset at the Merchant Taylors' School because of rain.

The umpires had hoped to get play under way at 15:40 BST before more drizzle arrived in north-west London.

Play was eventually called off at 16:35 BST with no sign of the weather improving and the light closing in.

The visitors will resume their first innings on the final day on 185-8, still 98 runs in arrears.
