FIVE football fans were ordered not to go within a mile of football grounds in Britain or France after appearing in court on hooliganism charges.

The five, from Oxford and one from Birmingham, were all arrested after Oxford United's game against Birmingham City on April 25.

Each was bailed to await trial on the conditions that they surrender their passports and do not go within a mile of grounds in the UK or France.

They were also ordered to report to local police stations on the days of England's matches during the World Cup.
