IF you skipped a family member's birthday party to watch England's World Cup semi final against Croatia on TV tomorrow, you could be in trouble.

But one family were surprised when Jenny Poole called off her own 70th birthday family get together so she could catch the game.

Jenny and around ten family members will be heading to the Cooper Associates County Ground, in Taunton, to follow the action on the big screen.

She put back by 24 hours a family meal at the Winchester Arms, Trull, so as not to miss the Three Lions trying to get to the final.

Her daughter-in-law Sandy said: "She seems to think it could be the last time she sees England get this far in the World Cup, so didn't want to miss it.

"Some of the men in the group are really happy about it. They suggested it and she was up for it.

"We're thinking about buying her an England shirt."
