Business Matters - Touting couple who made millions from reselling tickets are jailed

Two touts who made at least £11m selling tickets for concerts by artists such as Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift have been jailed, after they were found guilty of fraud at a landmark trial.

Peter Hunter and David Smith, trading as Ticket Wiz and BZZ, used multiple identifies and bots to harvest hundreds of tickets to gigs and West End shows such as Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
