More rain stops play between New Zealand and England in Dunedin as the hosts sit on 402-7.

Rain and bad light has stopped play on day three of the first Test match between New Zealand and England in Dunedin.

The hosts resumed play after tea and got to 402-7, with Brendan McCullum looking particularly dangerous at the crease.

The Black Caps lead by 235, but the umpires have taken the decision to halt play as the rain that had threatened all day got heavier.

The first day of the Test was a complete washout and current conditions look unlikely to get better today, making a result increasingly unlikely.
