Lancashire strengthened their position at the top of Division Two after beating Leicestershire by an innings and 52 runs in their LV= County Championship clash at Grace Road.
With the forecast rain staying clear of the ground, it took Lancashire just 18.1 overs to claim Leicestershire's last five wickets for 46 runs as the home side were skittled out for 174 in their second innings.
Kyle Hogg took three of the wickets to finish with figures of 5-77 in 22 overs, while Niall O'Brien top scored for Leicestershire although his 50 failed to make much difference in a crushing defeat.
The victory earned Lancashire 23 points, while Leicestershire remain rooted to the bottom of the table, still without a championship win this season.
The biggest threat to Lancashire's promotion push looked to be the poor weather forecast, but with no rain around there was a prompt start to the final day with Leicestershire resuming on their overnight 128-5, still needing another 98 runs to make Lancashire bat again.
There was a flurry of boundaries in the first three overs, with successive fours by O'Brien taking him to 50 off 63 balls. But then the wickets began to fall.
Tom Wells was the first to go edging to second slip for 17 off Tom Smith then O'Brien went next without adding to his 50, also caught in the slips flashing at a wide delivery from Hogg.
And when Ollie Freckingham gloved a lifting delivery from Hogg to wicketkeeper Gareth Cross, three wickets had gone for one run in seven overs. The end came quickly after that, with Matthew Hoggard bowled by Hogg and James Sykes popping up a simple return catch to Glen Chapple.
It was Lancashire's sixth win of the season and their fourth in the last five matches.
