Rotherham match 'jet fraud': Arrest made

A 38-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an alleged fraud involving selling non-existent flights to a Rotherham United away game.

About 70 fans paid £240 each to fly to the game against Plymouth on 20 April on a chartered jet that was never booked.

The organiser then went missing days before the game, leaving fans stranded.

South Yorkshire Police said a man had been arrested on suspicion of theft and fraud after a recent investigation.

Rotherham won the League Two match at Home Park 1-0.
