Top brass unban England Band

THE England band will play on after being given assurances they would be allowed into the remaining games at Euro 2012.
After driving 2,800 miles to Donetsk for Monday’s Group D opener with France and being granted admittance to the Donbass Arena, the band were stunned when security staff confiscated their instruments.
Following representations by the Football Association, UEFA have confirmed the band will be allowed into the Sweden game.
“We are delighted UEFA have seen sense on this matter and the band can carry on banging the drum for England,” said a spokesman for band sponsors Pukka Pies.
Band representative John Hemmingham added: “It’s the best news possible.”
