Around 400 people descended on Letchworth's Leys Avenue on Sunday to support our England team in the final of the Euro 2020 tournament. 

Although the result did not go our way, punters enjoyed the game together as they gathered for the event, organised by Letchworth BID.

Videos showed fans singing along to the unofficial tune of the tournament - and all-time crowd pleaser - Sweet Caroline.
