The England Women's World Cup team - led by Durham's Steph Houghton - has arrived at Heathrow after pulling off the best finish by any England team at a World Cup since the men were victorious in 1966.

Fara Williams' extra-time penalty against Germany in Edmonton handed the Lionesses a 1-0 win that secured them a bronze medal in the tournament.

As well as the captain, the squad also included four other players from the North East - Jill Scott, Lucy Bronze, Jordan Nobbs and Carly Telford.
