Waltham Forest and Redbridge have made it to the second round of the "World Cup of London boroughs" after thousands of people voted in the first round through a Twitter poll.

The second round saw London's 32 boroughs battling to be crowned champion - now only 16 boroughs remain.

Votes were cast by thousands of people through Twitter polls made on the 'World Cup of London Boroughs - here we go again...' account (@Zone1Bracket).

Redbridge beat its competitor Hillingdon during the first round with a whopping victory of 65 per cent.

Whereas, Waltham Forest competed against Harrow during the first round and only narrowly beat the borough with a 51 per cent majority.

The second round will pit Redbridge against Wandsworth and Waltham Forest against Bromley.

The most eye-catching match set for the second round is a “game” between the two big-hitting London boroughs of Hackney and Camden.

The final is set to take place later this month.
