US Authorities have charged six people over a scam involving the ticket website Stubhub.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance described an international scheme where fraudsters gained access to more than a thousand Stubhub accounts, bought tickets and then sold them on.

He said tickets to some of New York's "most sought after" events were stolen, including Justin Timberlake concerts, Yankee baseball games and sold-out Broadway shows.

He explained how the perpetrators were tracked down.
