    The England team have apologised for their "inappropriate" behaviour in the aftermath of their Ashes triumph, following reports some players urinated on the pitch at The Oval.

    "We got carried away amongst the euphoria of winning such a prestigious series and accept some of our behaviour was inappropriate," a statement read.
    "If that has caused any offence to anyone, we apologise."

    The statement continued: "The England cricket team would like to state that during our celebrations after winning the Ashes at no time was there any intention to disrespect Surrey CCC, the Oval or anyone else involved in the game we love.
    "As a team we pride ourselves on respecting all things cricket including the opposition and the grounds we play at.
    "We want to reassure people that it was a simple error of judgement more than anything else."
    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"
