The world number one enjoyed a straightforward passage to the third round.

Judd Trump eased into the third round of the UK Championship with a straightforward 6-1 win over China's Mei Xiwen.

The world number one stormed into a strong 4-0 lead in York as Mei struggled to get a foothold in the match.

Mei then pulled back a frame before Trump won the next two in succession to seal the win and book a third-round meeting with veteran Nigel Bond, who edged past Louis Heathcote 6-5.
