Veteran filmmaker Ken Loach has won the Palme D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for the second time.
He has won the award for his latest film I, Daniel Blake, a decade after winning the prestigious accolade for The Wind That Shakes The Barley.
The 79-year-old British director won the top award at the international film festival for his story of a former Newcastle joiner who becomes ill and struggles in the welfare system.
Fans attending to forthcoming England international at Sunderland's Stadium of Light will be able to visit a new 'twice the size' Fan Zone.
The game against Australia will take place on Friday 27th May.
Located on the south side of the stadium, the Fan Zone will open from 3pm.
It'll close just before kick-off, and re-open again at the final whistle.
Supporters are being advised to arrive early for the game, with approach roads and transport networks expected to be very busy.
Roads immediately surrounding the stadium will be closed to traffic and there is no on-site parking.
Match-goers are advised to use public transport where possible and city centre car parks for parking and drop-off points.
