The defence for Flamingo Land boss Gordon Gibb told magistrates this was not a one off and involved a "gang of ticket touts" who travelled from theme park to theme park. It was alleged they had set up shop in Flamingo Land's can park selling two for one vouchers which have no monetary value.
When Mr Gibb began walking one of them off the site, the court was told the man became veryaggressive and shoulder barged Mr Gibb before making a phone call saying "You'll get it now".
