Norwegian police have arrested an official bookmaker as part of an investigation into alleged match-fixing involving two local third division games in which four footballers have already been implicated, police said.

The person's identity was not revealed but they are an employee of Norsk Tipping, the Norwegian lottery which organises betting on football matches.

According to local media, large sums of money were bet in a short period of time in six Norsk Tipping agencies in Oslo on two third division games played on June 24th.

Police are focusing on a match which Follo lost 4-3 at Østsiden, despite leading 3-1 with 20 minutes to go. Three of the arrests were players from Follo and a fourth a player from Asker, who were beaten 7-1 by Frigg Oslo the same day.
