James Bond granted real British passport for Casino Royale production

25-Mar-2007 • Casino Royale

James Bond was given a REAL British passport for his latest movie outing - reports The People.

The Home Office handed it to star Daniel Craig for Casino Royale.

Whitehall officials claim they told producers to give it back after shooting so it could be shredded - to stop it falling into the hands of terrorists.

And Home Secretary John Reid said: "The Identity and Passport Service require such passports to be returned and destroyed immediately after use."

But a spokeswoman for film company Eon said: "They haven't asked for it so we'll be keeping it indefinitely."
