Three members of a BBC Magazines-organised trip to Euro 2008 have been arrested and released without charge after they were found in possession of stolen tickets.
According to the Mail on Sunday, the group were refused entry to the Italy v France match. A spokesman said the tickets had come from a reputable agency.
“It’s common practice for advertising sales people to entertain their clients,” an insider says. “But usually they don’t get arrested in the process. It was hugely embarrassing for the BBC.”
