The pope has banned faithful followers from bringing vuvuzelas to his public appearances on his UK tour next month.

The controversial horns made famous by fans at South Africa’s World Cup in June, were among a number of banned items at Pope Benedict XVI’s events during his four-day tour, the papal press office confirmed.

Alcohol, barbecues, gazebos and even traditional candles are on the “do not bring” list on the pope’s official visit website.

But papal officials gave the green light to banners and flags, blankets to sit on the ground and torches instead of candles.

The site’s “bring” list also recommends pilgrims bring a camera to capture their brush with the leader of the Catholic world.
