Pimlico Plumbers has created a banner in support of the England football team for the World Cup.

Pimlico Plumbers has unfurled a large banner on the side of its London headquarters supporting the England football team for the World Cup.

Managing director Charlie Mullins has also agreed to give staff Monday 12 July off if England reaches the final.

Positioned on the side of the depot in Lambeth and measuring 6 metres high by 2 metres wide, the company says the banner can be seen from Waterloo station, the London Eye and, on a clear day, Buckingham Palace.

"If we get to the final," said Mullins, "I've agreed to let everyone have the day off on the Monday to recover."
