Two men charged over alleged plot to assault and rob Joss Stone

TWO men have been charged with plotting to attack and rob British singer Joss Stone. 

Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, both of Manchester, northwest England, are accused of conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

Stone, meanwhile, said in a statement she was "absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal."
Police allegedly found swords, rope and a body bag on the two men when they arrested them near the 24-year-old's singer's isolated country home in Cullompton, a small town in Devon, South-West England.
The men also allegedly had detailed maps and aerial photos of her home.

Stone, who has a $US14.7 million fortune, is close friends with Prince William and was at his wedding. She was not believed to have been at home at the time of the arrests.

It is thought that alleged plot was foiled by neighbours who saw two men acting suspiciously in a car and alerted police.
Detective inspector Steve Parker, who was leading the investigation, said, "The men had information and items that lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offence."
