Banned Barrow football fan ordered to hand in passport ahead of World Cup

A BARROW football fan has been ordered to hand in his passport ahead of the World Cup.
Under legislation anyone subjected to a football banning order has to hand over their passport during major tournaments, including the World Cup and European Championship.
In Cumbria there are seven fans subject to banning orders – six in Carlisle and one man from Barrow.
Jon Doherty, of Victoria Road, Barrow, was subjected to a three-year banning order in 2012.
Doherty, 21, was arrested by British Transport Police for being drunk and disorderly at Preston railway station on November 3, after returning from the Guiseley v Barrow FA Cup game.
The game was his first match after a three-year ban that expired in September 2012.
Under the ban he is forbidden from entering any football stadium in the UK as well as prevented from travelling overseas to major tournaments.
A spokeswoman for Cumbria police said: “Cumbria as a force has seven football banning orders in place, one at Barrow and six at Carlisle.
“The legislation for Brazil is that the control period begins ten days prior to the first fixture June 12.
“Those who are banned will be required to surrender their passport at the police station in Barrow or Carlisle on that date for the duration of the tournament, and can collect it again on July 14, the day after the final – irrespective of England’s progress.
“In previous years they have then had to report to police stations on the day of England fixtures, however this is now not the case and hasn’t been for the last two major tournaments/championships.”
