UK's four main secondary ticketing agencies ordered to disclose fees

The UK's four main secondary ticketing agencies have been banned from using certain "misleading" price strategies.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said they had not been clear enough about extra fees added at the end of the booking.

The four largest sites are Get Me In, Viagogo, StubHub and Seatwave.

Such firms have attracted increasing criticism and last month Google changed the way the sites are listed after pressure from Ed Sheeran's manager.

Secondary ticketing sites are designed to re-sell tickets to concerts, shows and events where the original buyer can no longer attend.
