The UK Snooker Championship continues with another intriguing day of action in store at the Barbican in York, including Ronnie O’Sullivan, John Higgins and world champion Luca Brecel’s second-round clashes.

Judd Trump stormed into the quarter-finals of the UK Championship with a 6-0 win over Jamie Jones. The 34-year-old had been suffering the apparent effects of flu as he arrived at the tournament, but followed up his opening 6-1 victory win over Pang Junxu with another convincing display, including a break of 100 to start the match, for a 950th career century.

On the other table during Wednesday's afternoon session at the Barbican, Ding Junhui saw off Tom Ford 6-3 to reach the last eight thanks to breaks of 126 and 110, although Ford did hit back with runs of 118 and 98 to level the match. But Ding took the eighth frame and then closed out victory with a break of 106, which should secure his place in next year's Masters.

Here is today’s schedule in York:
