Many spent hours online trying to secure some of the 250,000 new tickets released at 11:00 BST on Thursday.

"Failed to get #CursedChild tickets after queuing for four hours," wrote one Twitter user. "Now loads on sale for hundreds of pounds on StubHub."

Tickets are currently being offered on the secondary site for up to £1,000.
