Britain Cracks Down on Olympic Tickets Resale

20,000 people are expected to be denied entry after a Norway ticket trader was shut down.


A black market operation in London Olympics tickets has been stopped and buyers of 20,000 seats will be denied entry to venues, the government said Wednesday.

Britain's Office of Fair Trading (OFT) said a joint operation with police had shut down websites run by Euroteam, an unauthorized ticket trader based in Oslo, Norway.
