that's it! Oram has finished it off, Panesar prodding away defensively, gets the thin edge and McCullum takes the catch
A very good victory for New Zealand who have outplayed England this Test and they thoroughly deserve their victory. Today was very positive, with a confident declaration from Vettori, which Mills rewarded with four wickets and Martin with three. England, however, played some negative cricket, though there were highlights in Sidebottom's feat.
"Amazing from the off.," says a jubilant Vettori. And on Taylor, who scored the first-innings hundred: "He came into the Test match knowing it was another chance. He's changed a little bit and can adapt to any situation - we've got a good one there.
"There were a few nervy times yesterday but there was a real positive belief that we would go out and win it. Chris and Kyle were outstanding with the ball and they set up the win. The wicket seemed benign but the way they stepped up was fantastic."
And on declaring, setting England 300: "It was a good feeling, it sent out a good message that we wanted to be out there."
And on going for a celebratory beer now: "I'll have a couple, thanks mate."
Here's a beaming Mills. "I've involved in five Test wins now and this would be the best of them. It was really important to get an early wicket today but it exceeded my expectations by getting those four early wickets."
The losing captain Vaughan says: "Full credit to the New Zealand team, they put us under immense pressure, bowled excellently as a group of bowlers, batted well in the first innings. We weren't quite up to scratch.
"190 for 5 was an opportunity to restrict New Zealand, we didn't take that. There was a small opportunity yesterday afternoon when Ryan took his hat-trick but full credit for the way they dug themselves out and the way they bowled today.
"We have three days to try and put it right and hopefully improve a bit on all the areas and get on top of New Zealand. They got on top of us early and stayed on top.
"We felt today, with the 300, if we got a good start and kept wickets in hand, we thought we could have a chance of looking for it in the afternoon.
"We've got to talk about this result but not dwell on it too much because we've got a Test which starts on Thursday." So do tune in then to see how England fare against a surging New Zealand.
Thanks very much for joining us over the last five days and do come back in four days' time when myself Jenny Thompson, and themselves Martin Williamson and Will Luke will be there to bring you all the action, ball by ball. Join us then.
