One Direction have thrown their weight behind a new initiative to make it harder than ever for ticket touts to take advantage of fans who are desperate to get their hands on concert tickets.

The boys have spoken up about this issue before in the past, having teamed up with the Twickets App during their OTRA Tour to ensure fans had a platform where they could buy re-sale tickets at face-value.

At the time Niall took to his Twitter page to explain their decision to join up with the service: "Really upsetting to see that some of our tickets are going for crazy prices as people try to cash in on our fans We think this is unfair. So we are working with an app called @Twickets where we've held back some good seats for our tour at face value prices."

Now, the official One Direction Twitter account has thrown it's support behind an online petition called Enforce The Consumer Rights Act, which is asking for the UK Parliament to re-enact last years policy where rules were tightened and ticket-resalers were forced to make their identity known.
