London, Feb.22 (ANI) Three people have been arrested over an alleged plot to blackmail Coleen Rooney, the wife of England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Coleen was targeted after losing a camera phone at a concert that contained private pictures of her son 15-month-old son Kai. It is understood the three demanded a five-figure sum in return for the camera.

But police were tipped off and the trio was arrested in a sting operation, The Telegraph reports.

Coleen was with Wayne at a Black Eyed Peas gig at the MEN Arena in Manchester in May last year when she accidentally left the phone in a private box.

British Transport Police spokesperson said: “We are investigating an allegation of blackmail that was reported to us. We have arrested three people - a woman and two men - and they are currently on bail pending further inquiries.” (ANI)
