Reynolds gets a World Cup grilling

Martin Reynolds, former head of sales at BM Solutions, found himself on the wrong arm of the German law last week at the England vs Trinidad and Tobago game in Nuremberg.

Instead of enjoying the second half of the match Reynolds was instead questioned by local police after being scammed into buying a stolen ticket for the game.

Alan Cleary, director at MBAC Consulting, who was at the match with Reynolds, says he was relieved that Reynolds wasn’t eating porridge for breakfast. Cleary says: “They just turned him into a witness and questioned him for about an hour, which meant he missed the second half of the match. They let him go once he explained the situation and just took down his phone number.”
