Thailand has declared Gary Glitter "persona non grata" and is threatening to return him to Vietnam, according to an immigration official.

The shamed ex-glam rocker has refused to board a flight from Thailand to the UK following his release from a Vietnamese prison.

The Foreign Office said Glitter remains in transit, reportedly in a VIP area where travellers can rent small bedrooms airside at Bangkok airport.

In bizarre scenes after landing in Bangkok, Glitter refused to board a connecting flight to Heathrow.

He apparently demanded to fly to Singapore after Thai officials refused to let him through passport control and into the country.

The 64-year-old, whose real name is Paul Gadd, reportedly argued with Thai immigration officers, insisting he was a "free man".

British embassy officials tried to convince him to board the flight home as a British police officer, who was supposed to be accompanying him home, looked on.

Glitter then complained of fatigue and was taken to the VIP area. Reports circulated that he claimed he was having a heart attack.

The ex-glam rock singer left Vietnam on yesterday, arriving in Bangkok after a 90-minute Thai Airways flight from Ho Chi Minh City.

He went to the airport straight from jail, where he had served two years and nine months of a three-year sentence for abusing two girls aged 10 and 11.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "The last information we have is that shortly before the flight to the UK departed he declined to board.

"We were last aware that he remained in transit. He decides where he applies to go and the country or authorities there will decide whether they permit him to enter their territory."

Glitter was originally due to arrive at Heathrow this morning, where he would have been met by police and ordered to sign the sex offenders' register.

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said yesterday she did not want him to be able to travel abroad again.

Glitter refused Hong Kong entry

Convicted paedophile and ex-pop star Gary Glitter has been refused entry to Hong Kong after being deported from Bangkok in Thailand. Chinese authorities informed the UK Foreign Office they had barred Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, 64, after his arrival at 11pm local time (1600 BST). Earlier he was deported from Vietnam after spending almost three years in jail for sexually abusing two girls. He flew to Hong Kong from Bangkok after refusing to catch a flight to the UK. He had boarded a Thai Airways flight to Chinese territory Hong Kong after Thai authorities refused him entry and threatened to deport him to Britain.

Medical plea

A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "It is a matter for the Chinese authorities to decide what action they take now." Immigration police at Hong Kong airport said privacy laws meant they could not comment on Glitter's case. He had earlier been barred from entering Thailand by immigration officials after he said he wanted to remain in the country or go to another Asian nation. This was despite a plea for medical treatment as Glitter said he was suffering a heart attack.

Glitter sold millions of records as a glam rock star in the 1970s, with hits including I'm the Leader of the Gang. Thai police had earlier told Reuters news agency they would be "deporting him to his home country, England, unconditionally". The BBC's Jonathan Head says 19 countries have already said they would refuse Glitter entry. The fact he has flown to Hong Kong is a blow to the UK authorities who want to get him home and on the sex offenders register, our correspondent says.

If Glitter does return to the UK, he will be met at the airport by police and required to sign the register. He will then be subject to monitoring and have to tell the police where he plans to live and if he planned to go abroad. He could also face an order prohibiting him from going near children or using the internet. Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said on Tuesday it was her view that Glitter should be given a Foreign Travel Order (FTO) banning him from overseas travel.

Travel bans

Ms Smith has also announced plans to tighten controls on the movements of paedophiles.

Proposed measures include increasing the length of time an FTO can apply from six months to up to five years, and automatically confiscating the passport of anyone subject to an order. At present, police are only allowed to rely on evidence from the previous six months about the risk an individual poses, but that time period would also be extended under the plans.

"I think these are sensible and proportional ways of toughening up what is already a very tough system. I think that's what we owe to children in this country and to children abroad," Ms Smith said.

The home secretary's announcement came after children's charity Ecpat UK accused the government of "turning a blind eye" to British sex tourists. The charity said it was too easy for nationals convicted abroad to stay under the radar of British police upon their return.
