World Cup conga a tradition dating back to 1998

It does not happen that often - only when England do especially well at the World Cup.
But yesterday's 6-1 demolition of Panama was one such occasion.
Drinkers at the Black Swan in North Walsham left the pub at half-time, when England were 5-0 up, and started a conga to the nearby King's Arms Hotel in the town. They returned about 10 minutes later.
A spokesman for the Black Swan, who did not wish to be named, said it was a tradition going back about 20 years, which equals four World Cups.
She said: 'They did not do the conga for the first England match, which England won 2-1 against Tunisia. But this was such a special score they formed up in a conga, left our pub, and went over to the King's Arms. It's all about clearing the room quickly and then getting them back in, about 10 minutes later.'
