Derbyshire police put England fans out of misery

POLICE in Derbyshire are to confiscate 68 passports from football fans ahead of the  Euro 2012 football championships.

Before major tournaments, supporters subject to football banning orders are required to hand in their passports to police stations ahead of the competition to prevent them from travelling.

Banning orders have usually been handed out to fans by courts following convictions for football-related disorder or a complaint from a police force.

The orders prevent people from attending football matches both at home and abroad and can be given for between two and 10 years.

A spokesman for Derbyshire police confirmed there were 68 football fans  subjected to a  banning order in the county, of which 67 had surrendered their passports as required.

He said officers were in the process of getting the 68th but there was no concern this would not be handed in.
