Australia are on 136-6 at tea on day four of the second Ashes Test against England at Lord's.

The visitors started the afternoon 534 runs behind England and made some steady progress before losing the wickets of Michael Clarke, Usman Khawaja and Steven Smith.

A total of 88 runs were added during the session to leave them 447 off victory. Clarke and Khawaja each made half-centuries, but they were both dismissed by the crafty spin of Joe Root.

Steven Smith was then sent back to the pavilion with one run to his name when he was caught behind off the bowling of Tim Bresnan.
