Detectives are investigating after Drake fans were sold fake tickets to the rapper’s concerts in Greenwich last week.

The Canadian Best I Ever Had artist, performed at The O2 Arena, in Peninsula Square, between March 24 to March 26 but some fans were disappointed when they were flogged fake tickets.

Four people reported being sold fake tickets outside Stratford London Underground Station and British Transport Police (BTP) believe there could be many more victims who travelled from across the UK to see the singer.

BTP Detective Constable Oliver Carne said: “A number of people have reported that they were sold fake tickets outside Stratford London Underground station, but only realised the tickets weren’t genuine when they got to the venue.

“Though only four victims have come forward so far, we believe there could be many more victims who travelled from all over the UK to see Drake.”

DC Carne added: “I’m appealing to anyone who has been sold fake Drake tickets outside a train or tube station, but has not yet spoken to police, to come forward.

“We have a number of leads, but need as many people as possible to get in touch.”

A 17-year-old man, from Hackney, has been arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

He has been released on bail until May 8 pending further enquiries.
