Brits have been warned to make sure they have their passports on them at all times when travelling to Spain.

The Mirror reports the Foreign Office has urged tourists to remember that Spanish police have the legal right to demand to see ID. Anyone who fails to do this can be detained.

The newspaper reports thousands of football fans are set to descend on Madrid for Liverpool’s clash with Atletico later this month.

According to the publication, most visits are trouble-free, but British travellers are now legally required to present their ID if requested by a police officer.

A driver’s licence is reportedly not suitable.
