With just one day to go before England's first World Cup game against the USA, homes, businesses and cars are already festooned with St George flags.

One family who have nailed their colours to the mast in spectacular style are the Greenwoods, of Huddersfield Road, Liversedge.

Their eye-catching display of flags and an inflatable footballer is already proving a hit with passers-by.

Son Danny, 19, said the display – two 10ft flags, half a dozen 5ft ones and 15 smaller ones – would now stay up for the duration of England's stay in the competition, hopefully until the final!
