Stamps mark historic Wembley game
Royal Mail stamps
The Wembley Arch provides the backdrop for the set
A set of stamps commemorating the first FA Cup final at the new Wembley Stadium have gone on sale.

The Wembley arch provides the backdrop for the set which depicts the crowned lion of England, the "three lions" of England and an English rose.

Royal Mail's Julietta Edgar said the collection marked the "rebirth" of the sports venue.

Up to 90,000 fans are expected at the stadium to watch Manchester United and Chelsea in Saturday's final.

Ms Edgar said: "Wembley has a special place in people's hearts and I think it's important to mark this latest chapter in its long history."
