SOUL singer Joss Stone has spoken about an alleged plot by two Huddersfield men.
Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, have been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
Both used to live in Huddersfield before moving to Manchester.
In an interview over the weekend soul singer Joss spoke for the first time about the incident, which saw the men arrested near the star’s Devon home in June.
She said: “I’m still fine, if slightly baffled by it. I can’t stress about what didn’t happen. That would seem silly.
“Every job has positives and negatives and I guess this was one of the negatives that come with mine.
“I don’t expect life to be perfect. I just try to make it as fun as possible. That’s an option all of us have.’
She admitted that the experience has made her more security-conscious, adding: “In that sense it’s been a blessing in disguise. I now lock all my doors and have installed a sophisticated alarm system. But it’s highlighted to me how brilliant the community down here (Devon) is. Everyone around is like extended family, all of us looking out for each other. I could never live anywhere else.”
Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, who had both been living in St Stephen’s Close, Manchester, appeared for a preliminary hearing at Exeter Crown Court earlier this month.
The pair were arrested on June 13, near the Ashill home of 24-year-old Stone.
Liverpool, who previously lived in Huddersfield, is a former student at All Saints Catholic College, Bradley.
Bradshaw was educated at Paddock Junior School and Royds Hall High School.
The case against both men was adjourned until October 24.
