TWO former Huddersfield men have been accused of a plot to rob millionaire singer Joss Stone.
Both have been remanded in custody in connection with an alleged plot targeting the soul singer.
Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, who both now live in Manchester, appeared in front of magistrates in Exeter charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
The two were arrested in the Devon town of Cullompton on Monday, near the home of 24-year-old Stone, whose hits include Super Duper Love and Fell In Love With A Boy and who has an estimated £9 million fortune.
The two men, of St Stephen’s Close, spoke only to confirm their identities during the hearing.
They will next appear at Exeter Crown Court on July 1.
Liverpool is thought to have previously lived in Dalton, while Bradshaw had an address in Bath Street, Huddersfield.
Both men stood in the dock casually dressed, Liverpool in a black T-shirt and Bradshaw, who had dreadlocks pulled into short pigtails, wearing a grey sweatshirt.
The court was told that the pair were arrested on the St Andrews Estate in Cullompton after being seen acting suspiciously in the area around the village of Langford in a Fiat Punto on Monday morning.
Items including a samurai sword were found in the car, the magistrates were told.
