A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of selling tickets without authority at the Olympic rowing event at Eton Dorney this morning, Thames Valley Police say.
The man was arrested shortly after 8.30am having been detained by security staff at the transport hub at Windsor Racecourse. He remains in police custody.
Supt Andy Standen, the Silver Commander of the policing operation, said: “Members of the public are reminded that tickets are not available at the venues and anyone caught selling tickets may be liable for arrest.”

There is pressure to reform the Olympics, to end the scandal of empty seats.
