A ticket tout has been given a caution after he was caught selling tickets for Olympics rowing events at Eton Dorney.

George Doran, 59, from Hanover, Germany, was arrested in Windsor on 30 July - the day Team GB's Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins won gold in the women's double sculls.

He was due to appear before Slough Magistrates' Court last Tuesday, but accepted a caution on Monday.

Thames Valley Police said no further action would be taken.
