BORIS Johnson should give fans the chance to follow England's World Cup progress on giant screens, according to a London Assembly member.
Len Duvall has written to the mayor demanding big screens be set up at sites across London - including the East End - so people can gather to show their support.
Public screenings have been a massive success in other UK cities and Mr Duval believes they would have similar appeal in the capital.
He told the Advertiser: "It is simply not acceptable that England's capital city has been left behind and Londoners are being denied the opportunity to enjoy the games together."
