Video - Broad Spell Seals Ashes For England - Cricket World TV

Cricket World's video news report as a mesmerising spell of bowling from Stuart Broad helps England win the Ashes series at Chester-le-Street.

Broad returned figures of six for 50 in Australia's second innings as England took nine wickets after tea to clinch a 74-run win.

Although Broad was named as the man of the match - having also taken five wickets in the first innings - Ian Bell's 20th Test century played a huge role in setting up England's win.

His 113 came after he arrived at the crease with his side on 49 for three in the second innings.

England had been bowled out for 238 in their first innings on day one, after which Australia, thanks to Chris Rogers' maiden Test century, replied with 260.

England then hit 330 to set Australia 299 to win, a target they fell short of in dramatic fashion late on the fourth day.

England now lead the series 3-0 with one match at The Oval still to play.
