Staffordshire’s Trading Standards team are urging people not to buy festival tickets from unofficial sources. Some of the biggest outdoor festivals have announced their line ups and have already put tickets on sale, with many selling out fast.

They are advising people to double check the authenticity of websites which may look real before handing over any money or to contact the festival organiser before buying a ticket.
