A housing estate has been covered in England flags ahead of the nation’s first Euros 2020 match on Sunday.
Residents on the Kirby Estate in Bermondsey, south-east London, have spent the past few days putting up bunting and laying flags over their balconies, as well as sticking them on street lamps and to walls just days before the delayed football tournament kicks off.
Chris Dowse, 42, who works in the hospitality industry, said people first began showing their patriotic side during the Euros in 2012.
This year also features a Scottish flag too, which Mr Dowse said is for a sentimental reason.
Mr Dowse said the football fever has also spread to a nearby estate where residents previously felt “left out”, so he and his neighbours have put up flags for them too.
Mr Dowse said the estate has already been visited by a few tourists from Portsmouth, and anyone else who wants to have a look is welcome to drop by.
