It on of the public building's across the region flying the St George flag. Norfolk police stations are also showing their support.

Assistant Chief Constable Simon Megicks said: 'We as a force are just excited as the rest of the country and are showing our support today by flying the St. Georges flag at all stations with a flag pole. You have all done your country proud and I hope you keep flying the flag for Norfolk with good behaviour, an excellent atmosphere and tolerance as England face Croatia.'
