World cup fever has gone right down to the bone in Bushey, as Fred the skeleton has donned his England shirt in time for their first game on Saturday.

Fred lives with Marc Goodkind and his family on the corner of The Avenue and Grange road.

The skeleton, who has nearly 500 followers on Twitter, has dressed in a number of different outfits - to the delight of people passing by.

Marc Goodkind said: "Fred’s dressed and ready to support after splitting opinion with club stripes. Everyone is behind England."

England will play Italy on Saturday in their first game.
