Classic England football song Three Lions will be played every hour at Chatham bus station

It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming - to Chatham waterfront bus station... a lot.

Passengers waiting at Chatham's main bus station will be able to get into the World Cup spirit by singing along to the classic football song, Three Lions, every hour during the day.

Medway Council announced the song will be piped over speakers at the bus station once an hour throughout the day, all the time England's hopes remain alive in the tournament.

Will you be singing along - or banging your head against the bus stop to the rhythm?

Written by the Lightning Seeds with comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner, the 90s tune is an addictive favourite, but bus users will need to maintain enthusiasm for it into next month if England progress to the latter stages of the tournament.

Deputy council leader Cllr Alan Jarrett hoped they would get to hear it as much as possible.

"I know we are all looking forward to a fantastic World Cup this year," he said.

"To help people in Medway have fun and enjoy the tournament to the full we're going to play Three Lions for the whole time England are in the tournament. I really hope that means the tune will carry on playing right up until the very end."

He added: "It's a great way to get people in the mood for the England games and we hope people will also have a sing-a-long as well.

"We want the lads to go all the way and this is our way of getting behind them. We aim to be the most patriotic council in England!"
