A woman is due to appear in court charged with harassment of England football captain Rio Ferdinand.

The Manchester United star has allegedly been plagued by Susanne Ibru, 38, turning up at his home and asking to speak to him.

Ferdinand, 32, who lives in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, with his wife Rebecca and their two sons, alerted police and Ibru, of the Friary Estate, Peckham, south London, was arrested and charged.

A spokeswoman for Cheshire Magistrates said Ibru, who denies the allegations, was due to appear at Macclesfield Magistrates' Court - which is sitting at Knutsford Crown Court - for a pre-trial hearing.
