Police had been concerned for the safety of a man on the bridge, but he left the area safe and well.


Friendly rivalry between Aussie & English cricket fans

Celebrating today's Ashes win were the Harris family from Ruddington in Nottingham.

Dad, Wayne, said although he brought a fan with him from 'down-under' -they were still firm friends after England's emphatic 3-1 series win.

It took just 39 minutes for Alistair Cook's side to see off the final three wickets in the fourth test at Trent Bridge.

The final test will be at the Oval later this month - but as the Ashes are England's once again - the only thing left to play for is pride.

England have regained The Ashes after completing the Fourth Test victory over Australia by an innings and 78 runs.

The hosts needed just three wickets on Saturday morning, which they achieved within 40 minutes.

Ben Stokes picked up his sixth wicket of the innings when he had Mitchell Starc caught by Ian Bell at second slip.

Fellow seamer Mark Wood then cleaned up Josh Hazlewood for a duck, which followed up by removing Nathan Lyon to complete the win.
