Two in court over ‘Joss Stone plot’


Two men are due to appear in court on Friday in connection with an alleged plot targeting soul singer Joss Stone.
Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, both from St Stephen’s Close, Manchester, will appear for a preliminary hearing at Exeter Crown Court. They have both been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm. The pair was arrested in the Devon town of Cullompton on June 16, near Stone’s home.
Grammy-winner Stone, 24, has sold more than 11 million albums worldwide, with her 2003 debut “The Soul Sessions” and its follow-up “Mind Body and Soul” going platinum in Britain, the United States and Europe.
The singer, who was recently cast as a Bond girl in a James Bond video game, is estimated to have a personal fortune of £9 million, according to a list of Britain’s wealthiest people published by The Sunday Times newspaper.
