As England fans count down to the big World Cup kick-off, the new owners of The Cutter Inn, Ely, are offering a dream prize - the chance to be chauffeur-driven to the new Wembley Stadium to watch the national side play.

Steve Haslam and wife Jo, pictured left, are refurbishing the Annesdale pub, and will automatically enter anyone who takes part in The Cutter's burger and beer promotion into a prize draw.

To be in with a chance, pre-order a home-made burger with salad, crisps and a bottle of beer for half-time consumption during any televised World Cup game at the pub for £7.50.

The winner will be announced on World Cup Final day, and will join Mr Haslam in being driven to the first game when Wembley reopens.
