Coleen Rooney 'was blackmailed over photos'

Coleen Rooney was subjected to a £5,000 blackmail plot involving hundreds of personal family photos on her stolen camera, a court has heard.

The cash was demanded from the celebrity wife of Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney in return for her Samsung digital camera which contained more than 400 photos on the memory card, a jury heard.

One snap allegedly showed Wayne Rooney “p***ed or stoned and on all fours”, Manchester Crown Court heard.

Other photos showed the couple's son Kai, family holidays and their home and wider family, which were all touted for sale to newspapers and magazines.

Jennifer Green, 25, and Steven Malcolm, 42, deny handling stolen goods and blackmail.
