The vuvuzela has caused a lot of controversy at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Hotel chain Premier Inn has said it was banning vuvuzelas to prevent exuberant football fans from disturbing customers.

The company said it was prohibiting the plastic horns after a number of customers took the instrument to watch England's disappointing clash with Algeria in the hotel bars.

There have already been calls to ban the instrument from inside stadiums in South Africa with broadcasters, players and some fans complaining about the incessant din.

According to reports England football team coach, Fabio Capello, has also banned vuvuzelas, which disrupted the team before its match with Algeria.
