Joss Stone: Plot to behead me was 'creepy'

Singer Joss Stone has told ITV that a plot to kidnap and behead her was "creepy".

Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw from Huddersfield researched the star and planned to attack her, using hammers and a samurai sword.

They were jailed earlier this year after crashing their car as they made their way to her home and even having to ask directions to the address when they got to her village.

They were arrested before they even reached her front gates.

Police: Joss Stone case complex, distressing, disturbing

This has been a long and difficult investigation. While on the face of it the circumstances speak for themselves, the enquiry has involved some complex areas of law and presented significant challenges to the investigation team.

I would like to thank those members of the public who recognised the suspicious behaviour of Liverpool and Bradshaw and acted positively by calling the police, along with those who have supported the investigation by providing witness statements.

Finally I would like to thank Joss Stone, her family and management for their ongoing support and assistance to the investigation team throughout this investigation, despite the distressing and disturbing nature of the events which were being uncovered.

– Superintendent Steve Parker, Senior Investigating Officer
