In just 39 minutes, the hosts took the three second innings wickets they needed to secure an insurmountable 3-1 lead in the series.
Ben Stokes and Mark Wood took the wickets, but it was Stuart Broad's performances earlier in the Test which helped him earn the £2,500 player of the match award to add to his £12,000 Test fee from the England and Wales Cricket Broad (ECB).
The Nottingham-born bowler took an incredible 8-15 on the first innings as Australia were bowled out for 60.
He joins Joe Root and Steven Finn as winner's of the Investec prize for best player in a Test at this year's Ashes.
All three will surely be in contention for the £4,000 player of the tournament award and will have enjoyed their share of the £21,000 handed to England for each Test match win.
As England regulars the trio all earn £650,000 from their central contract with the ECB.
Broad's shocked hand-to-mouth expression summed up the feelings of the nation and quickly became the defining image of the match and celebrated with the #OhMyBroad hashtag on Twitter.
