A Peterborough fan zone for England's first match of Euro 2024 this Sunday has been cancelled.

The outdoor event space under the Nene Parkway, at Nene Park, was to have hosted a huge over-18s event, with live bands and DJs to entertain the crowd and get the atmosphere right before kick off in the match against Serbia.

However the organisers - Peterborough Street Parties and Under Events – today pulled the plug on the venture
