England supporters told to get a takeaway on way home from pub after Euro 2012 quarter-final
ENGLAND fans are being told to get a takeaway on their way home from the pub after tonight’s match rather than cooking at home and risking burning down their house.
Adverts featuring the slogans GOAL! above pictures of burgers will be appearing in pub toilets across central London.
Supporters who might be feeling hungry after a few pints are encouraged to get a takeaway on their way home instead of cooking.
London Fire Brigade Commissioner Ron Dobson said: "Our research shows cooking after having one too many plays a massive part in house fires and sadly, one in every four fire deaths involves alcohol.
"If people cook tonight under the influence of alcohol they could be putting themselves and the people they love in danger. Play away from home and eat out."
