The tourists were dismissed for 416 on the third day – 152 runs behind England despite an unbeaten 128 by Chanderpaul.
And at stumps England had advanced to 71-0, 223 runs ahead with two days left to play in the first Test.
Flintoff bowled an inspired spell after tea to claim 3-25 while Ashley Giles took 4-129 in the innings.
Flintoff, who only came into the attack towards the end of the West Indies innings because of an ankle problem, bowled Dwayne Bravo for a 70-ball 45.
The Lancashire all-rounder then dislodged Tino Best’s off-stump for a first-ball duck.
Pedro Collins managed to fend off the next ball to deny Flintoff a hat-trick, but the Windies paceman was blowed by a Flintoff inswinger in his next over.
Spinner Giles also played a huge role for England, taking four wickets, including last-man Fidel Edwards for five.
West Indies started the day on 208-4 and still 160 runs short of the follow-on.
But Chanderpaul and debutant Bravo scored at a reasonable pace, notching up a 125-run partnership – a record fifth-wicket stand by West Indies at Lord’s.
And so on and so forth. It shows you how little we know.
I don’t know what wickets, spell, off-stump, first-ball duck, hat trick, inswinger, next over, last man, follow-on, bowling or notching are (Nor do I want to, Edd). I am not sure this BBC news article was written in english to tell you the truth. But I found it refreshing and soothing like a baby babble as I read it on my phone while waiting at the convenience store.
It turns out that one can have one too many shrimp
Today, Gollum/Godzilla died. I don’t know why. Shows you how little I know.
I am off to OSCON tomorrow and Linux Word Expo the week after
