CRICKET fans from across the capital flocked to Regent's Park over the weekend to watch England's stunning Ashes victory on a giant screen.

Former England batsman Nick Knight was on hand to take photos and give autographs and also hosted the '6 and 4' card game during lunchtime with Radio 1 presenter Mark Chapman.
