Grand Slam tickets for Wales v France above face value

Tickets for Saturday's Wales v France Six Nations game are being sold for high prices on secondary ticket websites.

The MP leading calls for a review of the live event ticket market in the UK, Sharon Hodgson, has told BBC Radio Wales that although not illegal, more needs to be done to protect rugby fans. She fears touts are buying tickets and then using secondary ticket websites to sell tickets at well above face value.

The director of one ticket website viagogo said it did not set to prices and only provided a marketplace and a secure service, with a number of tickets being supplied from France. Edward Parkinson said interest in the Grand Slam match had been "very exceptional".

Reporter Charlotte Dubenskij has been finding out how much fans would pay for tickets to the match. Viagogo director Edward Parkinson talked to Kayley Thomas.
