'Rooney prostitute' held in raid

A prostitute involved in the Wayne Rooney sex scandal has been arrested during a drugs raid by police.

"Juicy" Jenny Thompson was held after officers found drugs paraphernalia at the £400,000 property where she lives in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Officers also found a small quantity of what is believed to be cocaine at the house, which is owned by Thompson's wealthy parents.

Thompson, 22, was given a caution by police following the raid on Thursday morning.

She and another prostitute, Helen Wood, 23, hit the headlines last September over allegations of £1,200 payments for sex sessions involving married England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Both women later made public apologies to Coleen Rooney after making the claims that her husband paid them for sex during the time she was pregnant.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: "At 9.15am on Thursday June 2 2011, officers in Bolton executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act at a house on Queensgate, Heaton.

"Drugs paraphernalia was recovered from the house and a small quantity of a drug believed to be cocaine was also found.

"A 22-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the production of cannabis and possession of cannabis. A 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs.

"Both have been cautioned. The woman has been cautioned for possession of cannabis."
