Three people have been arrested over an alleged plot to blackmail Coleen Rooney .

The wife of Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney was targeted after losing a camera phone at a concert that contained private pictures of her son, 15-month-old son Kai.

It’s believed the trio demanded a five-figure sum for the return of the camera.

But police were tipped off and they were arrested in a sting.

Coleen (24) was with Wayne at a gig at Manchester’s MEN Arena in May last year when she accidentally left the phone in a private box.
