OP­ER­A­TION WORLD CUP

Po­lice or­der city hooli­gans told to hand over pass­ports

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page -

EIGH­TEEN known city foot­ball yobs have been forced to hand in their pass­ports to pre­vent them trav­el­ling to the World Cup.

And as part of a tough raft of mea­sures, po­lice have said they will pur­sue sim­i­lar Foot­ball Ban­ning Or­ders, which cover league and in­ter­na­tional games, on any­one caus­ing dis­or­der and vi­o­lence dur­ing the host of foot­ball cel­e­bra­tions be­ing staged by city pubs and clubs as Eng­land go for glory.

EIGH­TEEN known trou­ble­mak­ers in the city have been forced to hand over their pass­ports to pre­vent them trav­el­ling to the World Cup in South Africa.

In all, Cam­bridgeshire Po­lice have en­forced Foot­ball Ban­ning Or­ders in place on 26 peo­ple across the county.

These peo­ple were re­quired to sur­ren­der their pass­ports ahead of the World Cup to a po­lice sta­tion by June 1.

They are also re­quired to re­port to a des­ig­nated po­lice sta­tion on each day that Eng­land play. Fail­ure to com­ply is a crim­i­nal of­fence.

Po­lice say a 23-year-old man from Peter­bor­ough failed to sur­ren­der his pass­port be­fore Eng­land’s friendly match against Ja­pan.

He was ar­rested on May 30, charged with fail­ing to com­ply with the ban­ning or­der and bailed to ap­pear at Peter­bor­ough Mag­is­trates’ Court on June 1 .
