Veolia Environmental Services employees will be singing for England this summer after featuring in the nation’s world cup video.

Workers from the company’s Brent depot were filmed at Tanfield Road in Neasden, north west London as part of the video for football anthem ‘Hurry Up England’.

Five operational staff teamed up with Ginger TV Productions and will be seen singing along to the track that won a nationwide search to find the ‘people’s anthem’.

Veolia environmental manager for Brent Lee Bicknell said: “We were contacted by Brent Council last week and were only too happy to oblige. We have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to be a part of the England bid to win the world cup and delighted to be a part of a charity record.”

The single, which will feature former front-man of Sham 69, Jimmy Pursey, will be released in May to coincide with the start of the tournament in Germany with all proceeds donated to Roger Daltrey’s charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust.
