A number of known football hooligans in the county have handed in their passports to Northamptonshire Police ahead of the World Cup, a top officer has said.

Chief Superintendent Paul Phillips said a policing plan had been put in place to cover the World Cup, in particular the England games, the first of which is against Italy and kicks off at 11pm this Saturday.

Mr Phillips said the force was not expecting any trouble during the tournament and a number of known offenders in the county had surrendered their passports so they would not be able to travel to Brazil.
