Officials fight against counterfeit Bieber tickets

Trading standards teams and the police in Nottingham are gearing up for a busy evening ahead of pop star Justin Bieber's appearance in the city.

They fear the teenage singer's popularity is so huge that counterfeit tickets and merchandise will be rife in the city.

Plain clothed officers and trading standards officials will seize any illegal goods being sold on the street before and after the concert. It's sold out, and 9000 fans have been queuing throughout the day.
