Flintoff bowls England to victory

England celebrate winning a wicket

England have won the second Ashes Test, beating Australia by 115 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Andrew Flintoff was the hero of England on the day, finishing with five Australian wickets in the innings.

Flintoff is quitting Test cricket at the end of the series, so this was his final England appearance at Lord's.

Australia began the final day chasing a huge victory target of 522 with five wickets remaining, but were bowled out for 406 just before lunch on Monday.

It's big victory for England - and the first time they've beaten Australia at Lord's in 75 years.
