A man was remanded in custody today accused of selling fake tickets for a Carl Frampton fight.

Conor Lynch also allegedly traded bogus tickets to a gig by top DJ Carl Cox.

The 30-year-old appeared before Belfast Magistrates' Court charged with five counts of fraud by false representation.

Lynch, believed to be from Northern Ireland but with an address at Walton Breck Road in Liverpool, was arrested at the weekend.

The alleged offences relate to transactions on Gumtree and Facebook.

Lynch is accused of defrauding two different people in June 2017 by selling Carl Frampton fight tickets to a total value of £340.

According to the charges he also sold fake tickets for Carl Cox and Belsonic concerts in Belfast last year for a combined total of £200.

The fifth charge relates to an alleged attempt to obtain a £2,000 loan.

Police opposed Lynch's attempt to be released on bail.

Refusing his application, District Judge Mark Hamill remanded him in custody to appear again in four weeks time.
