SPANISH authorities are bringing police reinforcements back to Benidorm for the World Cup semi-final after English fans caused havoc in previous games.

The central government’s representative for Valencia, Juan Carlos Fulgencio, said in an email to the AFP press agency, “We’ve asked for extra police forces to come from other regions”

Local media showed footage of unruly behaviour by Brits during the England games.
