    UK passports have been redesigned to help fight identity theft and fraud (from BBC website).

    The Home Office says enhanced security features include hiding the security chip from view, and a personal details section that features holograms.

    The personal details move from the back to the second page, and a photograph of the owner now appears twice. The passports will be issued from October.

    The government says the new passport will give UK citizens added protection from identity theft and fraud.
