Fans of rapper Drake are being urged to come forward by police after four reported being sold fake tickets to his concerts at The O2 Arena last week.

The fraud victims were sold the tickets outside Stratford London Underground Station.

Det Con Oliver Carne said: “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.

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