Two men have been charged with ticket touting at the Champions League final at Wembley.

Stuart Rice, 25, from Weston, Crewe, and David Moorhouse, 32, from Bilston, West Midlands, were among nine men arrested by the Metropolitan Police.

They are due to appear at Brent Magistrates' Court in north-west London next month.

Two men appeared in court charged with ticket touting in May, and five others have been bailed pending inquiries.

Daud Husseyni, 35, from Hanover, Germany, pleaded guilty to ticket touting on 30 May and was fined £1,000.

Daniel Feroca, 36, from Romania, faces a trial at Brent Magistrates' Court on 9 August.

A total of 44 people were arrested for a range of offences during the police operation surrounding the game on 28 May, which saw Barcelona beat Manchester United 3-1.
