A London housing estate has been adorned with England flags as fans show their support for the World Cup team in Russia.

Local resident Geraldine Howard said her patriotic act of erecting a flag a few years ago had been followed by a neighbour, and “snowballed” from there, after residents were asked by letter if they were happy with the new decor.

She said: “Everyone’s embraced it. It’s such a diverse community on here anyway. It’s a really good community spirit.

“We just said if you want to fly your own flag that’s fine, but they’ve said they want to put it in between the England flag because they live in the country, they work in the country, and while they want to support their national team, they also want to support England which is really, really nice.”

Ms Howard said the flags will stay up “until England get knocked out so ‘Come on England’, let’s hope they do well”.
