POLICE have denied rumours they are banning football fans from showing support for their World Cup team by putting flags on their cars.

A spokeswoman for Norfolk police said: “There is absolutely no truth in these rumours and we have no idea where they have come from.

“To be clear we have no problem with England supporters, or indeed the supporters of any other country, demonstrating their support of their team.

“All we ask is that drivers be careful to place any flags securely in a way that does not distract them or any other road user and that anyone celebrating (or commiserating) should do so sensibly and within the law.

“In summary the Constabulary would encourage anyone with a passion for the game to get behind their team and enjoy the competition in a safe and sensible way”.
