If you want to watch the next England game at The Railway Tavern in Dereham you'll need a ticket.

Tickets are free but there will be no entry on the night without one. There is also a strict policy in place of no under 18s unless accompanied by a responsible adult.

These measures have been introduced due to the huge popularity of the pub's World Cup stands, which the landlord, Paul Sandford, had built so the community could enjoy watching the tournament together.

He said: 'Please understand these steps have been taken for safety and licensing reasons. Thank you all for your incredible support.'

Regular patrons of the pub will have the earliest access to tickets from lunchtime today, tickets become available to members of the public in the local area from tomorrow.
