England team director Andy Flower reveals that the squad will have "extra security" for the return Ashes series in Australia following Darren Lehmann's comments.

England team director Andy Flower has revealed that "extra security" will be taken to protect the squad for the return Ashes series in Australia.

The step up in security comes after Australia coach Darren Lehmann called on the nation's fans to make England bowler Stuart Broad "cry" when they arrive Down Under.

"The public were excellent there last time so we hope that will be the case again," the Daily Mail quotes Flower as saying. "There will be extra security for everyone in light of what was said."

Lehmann apologised to Broad following the comments he made during an interview with an Australian radio station.
