A European soccer match-fixing investigation has uncovered more than 380 suspicious games, including Word Cup and European Championship qualifiers and two Champions League games.

Rob Wainwright, head of the European police agency Europol, said the investigation uncovered "match fixing activity on a scale we have not seen before."

He said it uncovered 8 million euros (£6.9 million) in betting profits and 2 million euros (£1.7 million) in bribes to players and officials and has already led to several prosecutions.
