A free fanzone will be set up in a Lancashire park for Sunday’s Euro 2024 final.

It will be opened at Alkincoates Park in Colne after the already-planned family fun day.

Thousands of fans have been celebrating England’s recent dramatic victories at fanzones around the region and are now anticipating the team's first tournament final abroad where they will face a slick Spain side in Berlin.

Nathan Cutler, events officer at Colne Town Council, said: “We want everyone to come together as a community to back the lads in Germany and hopefully win this year’s competition.”
