Two men from Anfield have been charged over an alleged ticket forging operation for Liverpool FC matches.

Police launched an investigation after fans from all over the world never received tickets bought online, while others received fake ones.

Craig O'Donaghue, 29, of Dewsbury Road and Paul Murgatroyd, 27, of Breck Road, are charged with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation.

Both men are due at South Sefton Magistrates' Court on Thursday.
