That's it from us, so thank you for your contributions. The cricket continues over here - T20 Blast - and we'll be analysing the Test in more detail on the BBC cricket pages over the coming days. Until next time...
- Career-best 6-32 for Perry
- Elwiss 46, Greenway 16 off 137 balls
- England need Test record 263 to win
- Australia lead 8-2 in multi-format series
It's down to the players, not the coaches. There are world-class players not delivering. We're going to fight to the bitter end. A change of format might be able to help us express ourselves. If we want to keep hold of the Ashes we have to put in a big performance in Chelmsford.
BBC Test Match Special
"England will only hope they learn lessons and take them into the T20s."
England's Georgia Elwiss, speaking on Sky Sports, on the prospect of winning the three T20s: "We have to be confident. We have to go into that series with a really good attitude. It's going to be like tournament cricket."
It's really disappointing. I thought at tea time we had a sniff of holding on. We simply weren't good enough over the four days. We're not delivering as a batting unit, there's poor shot selection – it's not through lack of trying. It's been a common theme in the last three internationals. I guess we’re not getting a platform and then choosing poor options. We’re not learning quick enough.
"England's senior batsmen have got to stand up because their bowlers performed well."
England's Georgia Elwiss, who made 46 on the final day, on Sky Sports: "Me and Lydia (Greenway) built a really good partnership but it wasn't to be today."
On Ellyse Perry, who took 6-32: "She's a world-class bowler and she deserved her wickets."
Ellyse Perry has been talking about taking the wicket of Lydia Greenway, who was bowled when she ducked under a low one.
It was a bit of a strange one and indicative of how the pitch was low and slow. It was a strange wicket. Our confidence was pretty high, we knew at some point they would crack. They made it difficult for us. We probably shut the game down early with the win being out of their reach.
Other than Georgia Elwiss (46), no other England batter passed 16. In the first innings, six players got in and reached double figures but none could reach 40.
Australia captain Meg Lanning on TMS: "Greenway and Elwiss batted really well. There's always one partnership that's really hard to break."
On Jess Jonassen, who made 99 and 54: "She was batting on a different deck to the rest of us, so she was certainly a big difference in this game. She's one to watch."

"They have got a week to recover but it's going to be a tough task to bring them back up."
Australia captain Meg Lanning on the three T20s that remain in the series: "England are a class side and they've got players there who can win games. We'll have to play well to win the T20s."
We've still got a bit of cricket to play. We're in a handy position and that's pleasing but we still have to win a game which will be tough. We'll certainly celebrate but we want to win one more game.
Australia captain Meg Lanning on Test Match Special: "This Test match was massive for us. We knew it would put us in the box seat.
"Winning the Ashes is the one thing that we haven't been able to do in the last five years. We came here really confident."
Australia's Ellyse Perry, speaking to Sky Sports: "It was nice to come out after tea and bowl like we did and finish like we did.
"I thought Meg bowled really well before tea, it was nice to come out and finish it off quickly. I think we bowled well across the team today. There wasn't too much movement today, I don't usually bowl like that but it was indicative of how the game went.
"We go to Ireland next and play three T20s against them which will be a great warm up for the rest of the series. Winning this Test match marks us down as having a great advantage. We'll enjoy it tonight but we'll look forward to T20s now."
To put things into perspective, Australia scored their runs at 2.79 per over in their second dig (2.71 in first). England scored at 1.70 and 1.98 in the first innings.
Elysse Perry ended with figures of 6-32 after picking up 3-38 in the first innings.
Australia have been better in every department. They batted better, fielded better and some of their bowling has been nothing short of sensational.
"It's such a resounding victory, but it still flattters England because the rain helped them so much."
BBC Test Match Special
"It's nice to be here to call an Australia victory in an Ashes series. This is a wonderful achievement by this team."
Well done to Australia. They have taken an 8-2 lead in the multi-format Ashes series and need to win or draw just one of three Twenty20 internationals to regain the urn. England have been blown away.
The umpire's finger goes up for a final time, signalling the end of England's innings, Test, and possibly the series.
Kate Cross gets off the mark with a neat two through the on side. Same ball next up, same outcome. Ton up.
"Australia kept the field up; they had plenty of fielders around the bat. She has done absolutely brilliantly but, for now, Elwiss has left the building."
BBC Test Match Special
"England are crumbling now. Their resistance is fading fast."
Elwiss has left the building... and so have England's slim hopes of saving this game. A simple catch, from a full toss, is chipped to mid-on. Nine down, one to go.
Anya Shrubsole, who scored a 47-ball duck in the first innings, is off the mark straight away here with a single.
Sarah Coyte races through an over, five dots and a four for Georgia Elwiss.
"I've never seen that - a player bowled ducking under a bouncer. I'm still in shock."
