Shamed pop star Gary Glitter has been banned from leaving the U.K. to travel abroad.
The singer - real name Paul Gadd - was released from prison in Vietnam in August (08) after serving nearly three years for sexually assaulting two girls aged nine and 11.
He attempted to avoid deportation to his native Britain by flying to Thailand and Hong Kong - but was rejected and eventually returned to the U.K.
Glitter was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register when he arrived back home, meaning he has to inform British authorities of any travel plans.
He recently submitted a request to travel to Spain via France - but his application was turned down by a judge at Ashford Magistrates Court in Kent, south east England, last Thursday (25Sep08).
The 64 year old is thought to be planning to appeal the decision.
