Two men have appeared in court today (15.07.11) in connection with an alleged plot targeting Joss Stone.

Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33 - both from Manchester, North West England - were at Exeter Crown Court for a preliminary hearing after being charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm following their arrest near the singer's home in Devon, Southern England, in June.

Neither of the men - who were found to have a  sword and notes mentioning Joss in their car at the time - entered a plea and they have been remanded in custody until October 24, when they are due to appear at the same court.

At the time of the arrests, the 'Fell in Love With a Boy' hitmaker said: "I'd like to thank everyone for their concern but I'm absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their inquiries."
