French Football fans sing "God Save the Queen"

French football fans at yesterday's England V France match sang "God Save the Queen" and held up improvised St George's flag signs in tribute to the victims of terrorist attacks in London and Manchester (this was before the tower block fire or I'm sure that would have been in the mix as well.)

Both Britain and France have suffered from terrorist atrocities in the recent past.

England manager Gareth Southgate said: "We are very grateful to the French for offering this tribute to England as a country."

We are grateful for the solidarity expressed by our friends and neighbours in France, Germany and the rest of Europe.

Britain may be leaving the EU but we still want and need to be friends and partners with other European democracies.
