England reached 569 for six declared at tea on the third day of the second test against West Indies.

In reply, the Windies have struggled to 94 for 3 at stumps, in a session interrupted by rain and bad light.

For England, Alastair Cook's marathon eight-hour innings ended just before lunch on 160 when he spooned an easy catch to Chris Gayle at short extra cover.

Paul Collingwood finished on 60 not out and Stuart Broad on 28.

England lead the two-test series 1-0.
