Prime Minister David Cameron has congratulated the England cricket team on “a brilliant performance” in Australia.
The England team have retained the Ashes for the first time in 24 years.
The PM said:
Congratulations to the England team and Captain Andrew Strauss on a brilliant performance Down Under.
Retaining The Ashes for the first time in almost a quarter of a century marks a very special end to the year for sports fans and a great late Christmas present for the country.
I look forward to welcoming them to Downing Street when they return.
