A nice place for a stroll... Published: 22 May 2012

Lord's TV joined thousands of spectators on the outfield at the Home of Cricket on day five of the England v West Indies Test, after MCC permitted perambulation.

MCC has allowed perambulation during several Test matches in recent years, including England's matches against Bangladesh in 2009 and Sri Lanka in 2011.

The majority of the crowd, which numbered around 7,500 on Monday, took advantage of the decision to open the outfield during the Lunch break, with young and old stretching their legs after a thrilling opening session which had seen 121 runs and two wickets.

Ticket prices were set at £10 for adults, £5 over 65s and free for under 16s with all three results still possible ahead of the final day's action.

England went on to secure a five-wicket win an hour after Lunch, despite being reduced to 57/4 in the morning session, with Ian Bell striking the winning runs.
