James Anderson took 4-24 as Lancashire bowled Worcestershire out for 98 on the first day of their Specsavers County Championship Division Two clash.
Anderson and fellow new-ball bowler Graeme Onions (4-55) reduced Worcestershire to 24-4 at New Road and the hosts never recovered, with Saqib Mahmood (2-8) getting in on the act for Lancashire.
Ed Barnard was the last man out for Worcestershire, caught behind off Anderson, having top-scored with 32 before the rain arrived and stopped play before Lancashire could begin their reply.
Ben Raine made an unbeaten 75 to lead a Durham recovery that saw them close on 209-7 against Northamptonshire, having been 81-7 at Emirates Riverside. Durham vs Northants scorecard
Raine shared an eighth-wicket stand of 128 with Brydon Carse (47no) after Northants had ripped through the Durham top and middle-order.
Ben Sanderson (3-39) removed the top three for Northants and loanee Matt Coles and Nathan Buck each took two wickets before Raine and Carse hit back for Durham in the evening session.

There was no play in the other match in Division Two between Leicestershire and Middlesex at Grace Road with the umpires making the call to abandon the day's play just before 4pm after persistent rain.
All three games in Division One were washed out, leaders Somerset will hope to get their game at Kent underway on day two, while Surrey and Yorkshire will try again on day two of their match at Guilford.
It was the same story for Hampshire and Nottinghamshire, with day two rained off. Hampshire were 93-2 at the end of day one, in reply to Notts' 162 at Welbeck. Hants vs Notts scorecard
