Cricket: England on top in Test

England celebrate

A century from Andrew Flintoff and three wickets from Matthew Hoggard put England in control of the fourth Ashes Test against Australia at Trent Bridge.

Flintoff scored 102 and Geraint Jones notched up 85 in their 177-run partnership to help England go from 241-5 to 477 all out.

Hoggard and Simon Jones then put on a magnificent display, leaving the Australians on 99-5 at close of play.

England and Australia have won one match each, with the other game drawn.
