It's official: England has secured its place in the final of Euro 2020 for the first time in history. But if you were thinking of hosting a final party on Sunday, you might need to think again.

Covid restrictions mean that people are still only allowed to gather in small groups inside, and many have instead been considering hosting outdoor events to watch the final on Sunday evening.

But you might need to pack your umbrella - the weekend is set to be a soggy one in Wakefield and the Five Towns.
