OUT! Bowled. Chris Woakes to Tim Murtagh. Slower length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to. The slower ball gets through Murtagh and hits leg stump and brings this Test match to an end. It also brings Ireland's hopes of victory to an end. They were well in this game for the majority of it, at times they were probably on top. Jack Leach's 92 as nightwatchman looks a great effort looking at the scorecard now and turned out to be a match-winning knock. In the end the realities of Test cricket have come down on Ireland this morning like a ton of bricks. Woakes and Broad were excellent in conditions that were tailor-made for them and it took just 15.4 overs for them to pick up all ten Irish wickets. That's all from me at Lord's, next up for England it's Australia and the start of the Ashes.

OUT! Caught. Stuart Broad to Andy McBrine. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Root. Round the wicket, shape away, off the outside edge and pouched at first slip yet again by Joe Root. Four catches for Root and four wickets for Broad. England have simply been too good, amazing skill and control from Broad and Woakes and excellent catching to back them up.

OUT! Caught. Chris Woakes to Stuart Thompson. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to first slip, by Root. Edged and taken by Root and it's another five wicket haul at Lord's for Chris Woakes. Angled across the left-hander, the perfect length again and Root did well to hold on at first slip.

FOUR! Chris Woakes to Stuart Thompson. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, past long off for 4 runs. Full and firmly driven back down the ground for four, I'm not sure Woakes will be too worried about that though.

OUT! Bowled. Stuart Broad to Mark Adair. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Broad follows up with a full ball that nips back in sharply through the gate and knocks back off stump. Adair was playing a big drive, Ireland maybe deciding now that attack is the best form of defence but not on this occasion.

SIX! Stuart Broad to Mark Adair. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Adair does take on the shot and nails it this time, the ball going all the way for six. Looking at the replay he had his eyes closed as he hit it!

Stuart Broad to Mark Adair. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, hit helmet to short leg for no runs, fielded by Burns. Another blow on the head from Broad as Adair tries to pull. England have the trap set for him, they think he's going to take on the shot.
