London: Newspaper headlines and reaction to England's Ashes victory over Australia on Sunday.

Daily Mail

ECSTASY - ENGLAND SEIZE THE ASHES TO SPARK GIANT PARTY

"What a triumph, what a recovery from the start of the year, when England were in such turmoil. This was a greater achievement, surely, than 2005 because they had hit rock bottom when Kevin Pietersen and Peter Moores were sacked. An England phoenix has risen since from the ashes of the previous regime" - Paul Newman
