Australia have the Ashes for the first time in seven years after sealing a deserved 150-run win in Perth to take an impregnable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

Despite a redoubtable maiden Test century from Ben Stokes in only his second match, Michael Clarke's men took the final five wickets they needed by early afternoon on the final day to end England's 1,577-day ascendancy in cricket's oldest rivalry.

The celebrations began when Mitchell Johnson - the outstanding player of the series - had James Anderson caught at short leg, and they are likely to be long and raucous after a sustained and painful drought for Australian cricket.
