A MAN from Winsford has been arrested over the supply of fake Champions League football tickets.

Officers carried out a warrant an address in the town this morning, Wednesday, May 25.

A number of suspected fake FA Cup Final tickets were also seized together with a computer and mobile phone.

The arrest comes just days before Liverpool play Real Madrid in the 2022 UEFA Champion League final in Paris on Saturday.

Enquiries remain ongoing.

Police say a 37-year-old man will voluntarily attend for questioning on offences under the Fraud Act at a later date.

Chief Inspector Andy Rankine said: “We will act on information in relation to the supply of fake tickets and I would encourage anyone who can assist us to get in touch.

"To ensure that people do not fall victim to fraud our advice would be to always use official, legitimate and authorised websites to purchase tickets and be aware of fake ticket websites run by scammers.

“I know that a lot of Liverpool fans are desperate to get their hands on final tickets but if you were not lucky enough to get one in the ballot then please don’t be tempted by offers that sound too good to be true.”
