– A police officer who seized CCTV footage of a street scuffle as a “tool to blackmail” Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard is facing jail. Ex-PC Helen Jones obtained footage of the row involving Gerrard, by “flashing her warrant card” to the boss of a Formby bank in August last year. Jones, 33, admitted misconduct in a public office at a previous hearing. Preston Crown Court heard that after the CCTV was obtained by Jones Gerrard faced “demands and threats” for money.
