An Independent councillor has urged West Lancashire Borough Council to fly the English flag outside the council offices on England match days in support of the national football team during the World Cup.

Cllr Adrian Owens said, “I wrote to the Council Leader before the quarter-final making the suggestion but sadly received no reply. The flagpoles at our Civic Centre were bare on Saturday as England were victorious over Sweden which was a shame.

“West Lancashire residents are backing England as strongly as people in other parts of the country and I hope the council will get behind the national team and fly the flag on Wednesday and then, fingers crossed, next Sunday as well.”
