Two people from Essex have been arrested after dozens of Beyonce fans were left out-of-pocket when they were duped into buying fake concert tickets worth thousands of pounds.

A 31-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman from North Weald have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud, after around 140 fans were turned away from the popstar's gig at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester four months ago.

The tickets were offered for sale at more than £100 each.
