Cleethorpes woman in a plot to blackmail footballer is spared jail.

Natalie Wood 28 from Cleethorpes seduced a premier league footballer in a plot to blackmail him. When the plot was exposed she became a victim of trolls

She was planning to rip off the footballer by threatening a kiss and tell story after filming them having sex. When her two accomplices burst into the hotel room the footballer jumped out of the window in only his underwear. The premier league footballer has been granted life long anonymity.

She was spared jail at Bristol Crown Court because it was believed that she had been subjected to significant manipulation by the other men who were involved in the plot. Natalie Wood was jailed for 14 months but had the sentence suspended for 12 months due to the exceptional circumstances. She has since apologised to the footballer. Three men were cleared of the charge at a trial in October.

One of the two men who burst into the room was jailed for 16 months for stealing the footballer’s Rolex watch and designer tracksuit.
