Two arrested in Joss Stone 'murder plot'

Two men have been arrested over an alleged plot to rob and murder Joss Stone.

Police said the pair, who were found in a car outside the singer's home in east Devon, were arrested on Tuesday morning (June 14th).

They were carrying a cache of weapons inside their vehicle including a sword, rope and body bag, reports The Daily Telegraph. 

Both men, aged 30 and 33, are also understood to have had maps and aerial photos of her home.

They were initially arrested on Monday morning (June 13th) on suspicion of having an offensive weapon and planning a burglary.

Her neighbours are said to have foiled the plot when they saw two men acting suspiciously in a red Fiat Punto near her property in the Cullompton area.

Both men are currently being held in custody at a police station in Exeter.

It is unclear whether the singer was at home at the time.
