author avatar by 14 years ago

England have completed a 3-1 Ashes series victory over Australia after inflicting another innings defeat in the final Sydney test.

The result is the first time in 24 years that England have won the Ashes in Australia, and marks a stark turnaround from the team that lost 5-0 in the same series just four years ago.

We sent our reporters out onto the streets to find out what you thought about England’s victory against the old enemy.
