Three more arrests over sale of Olympics tickets


Another three people have been arrested on suspicion of the unauthorised sale of Olympics tickets.

Two men and one woman, who are also suspected of fraud, were arrested yesterday by detectives from Operation Podium, the investigation into the unauthorised sale of Olympic and Paralympic tickets, and Leicestershire Police.

Scotland Yard said the two men, aged 33 and 44, and the women, 46, were bailed to return on a date in early July.

A 39-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday on the same charges and was bailed to the same date.
