Kent Police were granted the order at Ashford Magistrates’ Court last Thursday. Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, did not attend the hearing but was represented by Corker Binning Solicitors.

A Court Service spokesman said: “On Thursday, September 25 at Ashford Magistrates’ Court, Kent Police applied for an application to prevent foreign travel to France and Spain until March 25 by Mr Paul Gadd.”

Kent Police said they would not discuss individual cases or the possible whereabouts of Glitter in the county.

A Kent Police spokeswoman said: “Kent Police will do everything necessary to protect children in this country, or abroad.

“From our point of view, it is easier to monitor someone who remains in the UK because we have comprehensive systems in place to manage any potential risks more effectively. “Protecting the residents of Kent is the paramount concern of Kent Police and we work closely to monitor the behaviour of registered sex offenders in the county to minimise any risk to the public that may exist.”

She added: “However, we will not discuss whether or not a named person is on the sex offenders register in Kent, or the circumstances of individual cases. We will not discuss any details about named registered sex offenders, which extends to confirming or denying speculation about where they may live.”

Glitter, 64, has laid low in the UK since he was ejected from south-east Asia at the end of his Vietnamese prison term last month. He had served two years and nine months of a three-year sentence for sex crimes involving girls aged 10 and 11.
