Two held in music festival ticket 'fraud' probe
Two women have been arrested by police investigating an alleged European music festival ticket scam.
The women, aged 50 and 21 and from Tavistock, were arrested on suspicion of fraud by misrepresentation by officers from Devon and Cornwall Police.
The force is investigating an allegation of fraud surrounding the sale of tickets for Tomorrowland 2013 – an electronic music festival held near Antwerp, near Belgium in July.
Police believe there could potentially be hundreds of victims from across the country and are urging anyone who thinks they have been scammed to get in touch.

Det Con Glenn Harrop, who is leading the investigation, said the investigation was ongoing and due to the complexity of the case inquires were expected to take several months.
“We believe there are potentially hundreds of victims from across the country,” he said.
“I would like to ask those people to please be patient with us while we carry out some very lengthy inquiries.
“Any notable updates to this investigation will be posted via the Devon and Cornwall Police Twitter account and Facebook page.”
The two women have been released on bail until February 2014.
