"Even though they didn't quite bring it home they did us proud and we just want to make sure that everyone had as much fun as we have had."

The offer is running all day today (Monday, July 12), and Jamie and the team at Fitzcane's have been enjoying bringing some joy to the town.

He added: "People have really been enjoying it. They've been very shocked that we are giving away free ice cream but seeing the kids faces light up has been really nice.

"Regardless of the result last night - [the England team] have given us so much and we think it is the small things that really make a difference."

The Fitzcane's team has been kitted out in England t-shirts today after they were sent in by the shop's owner.

"We also want to thank the owner, Caroline, for all the support she has shown us - everyone really does appreciate all she does."
