London 2012 Olympic ticket fraudster Christakis Ioannou jailed

A man who took part in what police describe as the biggest ticket scam they uncovered at the London 2012 Olympics has been jailed for four years.

Christakis Ioannou, 44, admitted participating in a fraudulent business and concealing criminal property at a hearing last month.

Ioannou, of Crantock Road in Catford, south-east London, was sentenced at Kingston Crown Court on Friday.

Warren Nettleford spoke to Det Supt Nick Downing from the Metropolitan Police and ticket fraud expert Reg Walker.
