Hours before kick-off and the whole of Cambridgeshire is on tenterhooks ahead of the biggest football game for English fans in 50 years. 

With the clock ticking down to kick-off for the England v Italy final of Euro 2020, the Mayor of Wisbech Cllr Andrew Lynn is as excited as most.  

He even paid a visit to Southwell Road to see the freshly painted sign on wishing for an England win.  

“As mayor of your home town is truly amazing for so many reasons,” he posted to Facebook. 

“I am loving every second, never so much as today to be lucky enough to go and be welcomed by the best community on the planet.
