Hampshire slumped to 18-5 before recovering to 92-7 as Essex took complete control of their Specsavers County Championship match at Chelmsford.
Kyle Abbott's 5-58 helped limit Essex to 360 - having started day two on 243-2 - but the visitors then found themselves in deep trouble at the start of their response.
Having progressed to 18-0, Hampshire lost Liam Dawson, James Vince, Michael Carberry, Rilee Rossouw and George Bailey in the space of 17 balls as Jamie Porter and Matt Quinn shared all five wickets between them during a stunning spell.
Ravi Bopara then weighed in with the scalps of Sean Ervine and Gareth Berg as the Essex bowlers ran riot in overcast evening conditions to make it 34-7, before Lewis McManus (30 not out) and Abbott (27no) put on an unbroken 58-run stand for the eighth wicket - but the visitors still trailed by 268 runs at the close.
Jack Leaning posted his first hundred in the County Championship since June 2015 as Yorkshire dominated a rain-affected second day of the Roses match against Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford.
Only 43 overs of play were possible as the White Rose advanced their first innings from 251-6 overnight to 421-7, including an unbeaten career-best 94 off 135 balls for Jack Brooks.
The pair even shared an unbroken eighth-wicket partnership of 165 inside 40 overs, a Roses record for either side. Leaning finished the day with 118 not out off 288 balls.
Jonathan Trott completed an 82-ball half-century as only 6.1 overs were possible on day two of Warwickshire's match with Somerset at Taunton.
The action resumed with the visitors on 93-3 and Trott unbeaten on 30. After Jack Leach had delivered one ball to complete his unfinished over from day one, the Overton twins took up the attack for Somerset.
Craig bowled a testing first over from the Somerset Pavilion End and Jamie had a big appeal for lbw against Trott rejected with his first delivery of the day. But there were also some over-pitched deliveries, which Trott and Sam Hain capitalised on with some meaty drives.
Dawid Malan hit his maiden century of the season as Middlesex enjoyed the best of the second day of their clash with Surrey at Lord's.
Malan combined with his Middlesex sixth-wicket partner James Franklin to add an unbroken 92 to cut Surrey's first-innings lead to a modest 17 and take the hosts into the third day on 296-5.
Just before the close Malan reached three figures from 169 balls with 15 fours, while Franklin faced only 67 deliveries in his knock of 63 not out.
