Getting the crowds in

The Nutley has arrived on the beautiful island of St Lucia. No bags on arrival and the first instance of "be here tomorrow, man".
No matter: England's crunch game is around the corner and the sun is shining.
And St Lucia's authorities are trying their hardest to get the locals into the game. Speaking to a local bar owner today, it transpires that cable TV owners are being forced to stump up a few hundred extra dollars to watch the matches on their island. You could watch Ireland v Zimbabwe today but any chance of catching the England-New Zealand tie could be in vain unless last minute talks are averted. It remains to be seen whether their gamble pays off. More pictures are up in flickr.
