Barry Hawkins said the tables at York's Barbican should be burned as he joined the list of players to criticise the conditions at the UK Championship.

Stephen Maguire has said the tables were "not good enough", while Ding Junhui was furious with the multiple table set-up after his first-round defeat against Adam Duffy.

World number eight Hawkins lost 6-3 to Robin Hull in the second round.

"The conditions were just unplayable," Hawkins told BBC Sport.

"It was a load of old rubbish performance-wise, but I had no confidence in the table. I think we should set fire to the lot of them to be honest."

World Snooker says atmospheric conditions will affect the way the tables play and that it is aware of players' concerns and is looking into ways to address the situation, including new cloth.
