Marquee and big screens for Phoenix Group staff

England fans have been watching their team's victory against Slovenia with one firm laying on a marquee for its staff to watch in style.

Up to 600 staff at financial firm Phoenix Group Holdings, in Wythall, Worcestershire, watched the match on big screens.

A spokeswoman said it was good for staff morale.

She said the firm had been overwhelmed by how many people had wanted to watch the match.

"We thought rather than book a meeting room we would go out in style and put a marquee up and get some big screens.

She said there was food and drink in the marquee and the firm thought it better for staff, rather than try to listen on radios or by texting friends.

England won the game 1-0 and earned a place in the World Cup last 16.
