People who have been banned from football matches are being reminded to hand in their passports ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokesman said: “A total of 55 people are currently subject to Football Banning Orders in Nottinghamshire - 38 of whom have passports.

“Those who haven’t already handed theirs in have until 7pm tomorrow (Tuesday June 5).”

Anyone failing to surrender their passport can be arrested and could face a fine, prison or a further banning order.

In Nottinghamshire, passports can be handed in at Central, Newark, Mansfield and Worksop police stations.
