LEADER of Ealing Council Julian Bell today hoisted the England flag over Ealing Town Hall in support of England's World Cup campaign in Brazil.

England play Italy on Saturday in the first of their group stage matches and Cllr Bell has promised the flag will fly until England are knocked out of the competition.

He said: “It’s important we show our support for the players representing our nation in the world’s biggest sporting event.

“As a huge England fan, I know I’ll be joined by thousands of Ealing residents in willing the team on to victory.

“Events like the World Cup are great at bringing together residents from all over our diverse borough. No matter who wins, it’s always a great occasion that many people look forward to.”
