Two suspects have been arrested in connection with a Beyonce ticket scam in Britain earlier this year (14).

Police launched an investigation amid concerns almost 300 fake tickets were sold for the Crazy in Love hitmaker's shows in Manchester, England in February (14), netting the scammers a profit of around $45,000 (£28,125).

Victims were unaware they had been conned until they arrived at the venue for the show only to be informed their tickets were counterfeit.

A 31-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman from Essex, England have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud. They have been bailed until November (14).
