Broad, who had taken four wickets in the first innings of tourists in the morning, continued to eliminate opener John Campbell without scoring and then night watchman Kemar Roach (4) after the West Indies were in the final six days of the day. .
England had declared 226 for two in their second inning as Rory Burns scored 90, Joe Root a quickfire 68 and Dom Sibley 56.
They sped up race speed in the Sunday afternoon session, looking to build a big lead, but still left enough time to return to the West Indies and win the Test.
England sped up at the prospect of Monday’s game being heavily curtailed by the rain, leaving them with the game on Tuesday’s final day to attempt the engineer’s victory and take the series 2-1.

Root was not out, scoring his runs with just 56 balls when he went after bowling with a signature touch.
Sibley was the first England wicket to fall after a 114-run association with Burns, a leg caught before wicket by Windies captain Jason Holder.
England started their second inning just before lunch after Broad finished 6-31 in 14 overs, clearing the tail to fire the West Indies by 197 in the first innings and giving their team a 172-run lead.

Holder led the fight while scoring 46 major runs to help his team avoid follow-up before Broad made him win.
The series is leveled after the West Indies won by four wickets at Southampton before England had a 113-race victory at Old Trafford.
