Three men were given football banning orders by Magistrates on Saturday 11 June.

The men, all from Cambridgeshire were stopped by officers at the Channel Tunnel at about 5.45pm on Friday 10 June after acting suspiciously on approaching the booths.

Officers confiscated their passports and following enquiries they were ordered to appear at Dover Magistrates’ Court on Saturday 11 June.  The case was heard in their absence and the judge agreed to the three year banning order, preventing them from attending any football matches for three years.

Chief Superintendent Alison Roden said: ‘This sends a strong message to anyone thinking of travelling to France to cause disruption that it will not be tolerated and our officers will continue to identify any high-risk individuals

‘Although the majority of UK football fans are law-abiding and peaceful we know there will unfortunately be some intent on causing disorder.

`I would like to reassure supporters that experienced officers are deployed to identify and prevent high-risk individuals travelling before and during the tournament, to help ensure Euro 2016 is remembered for all the right reasons.’
