Take That tour sales crash ticket sites

Take That fans have reported major problems trying to buy tickets for the group's new tour - their first with original member Robbie Williams in 16 years.

"Unprecedented demand" overwhelmed official ticket agencies, meaning many fans were to unable to access their websites or get through on the phone.

Meanwhile hundreds of tickets have appeared on eBay and other secondary websites at inflated prices. But police have warned fans not to buy from unofficial agencies, whom they said may not fulfil orders and may use personal details in identity theft.
