Tom Latham and Graham Clark extended Durham's lead to 156 runs before rain stopped play against Kent on day three.

Latham (64 not out) and Clark (49 not out) moved the score onto 145-2 without losing a wicket in a important 106-run partnership for the hosts.

But rain and bad light stalled the progress of Paul Collingwood's side as only 28 overs were bowled in the day.
