Resident hopes Wayne Rooney and teammates will be heavenly against Luis Suarez and Uruguay tonight

IS this heavenly vision a sign of World Cup glory or gloom for England?

That is the question being posed by the East Hill resident who marvelled at a cloud shaped like the UK which hovered above Sidmouth and Ottery St Mary.

Sue Bray was sitting in her garden when the ‘perfect’ formation appeared an hour before the Three Lions kicked off their campaign in Brazil with a 2-1 loss to Italy on Saturday.

She rushed inside to grab her camera, and while it dispersed a little on her return, the patriotic theme of the cloud can still be made out.

Residents will of course have a better idea of the answer to Sue’s question this evening when the national side take on Uruguay in a make-or-break clash.
