Rooney escapes police arrest for breaking lockdown rules
Former England ace Wayne Rooney has reportedly been told off by police after he was spotted walking with Manchester City defender and neighbour Kyle Walker in the middle of Britain’s coronavirus lockdown.
The Cheshire neighbours were both walking along Prestbury golf course with their families – flouting rules to only go outside with your own households.
News of the swoop comes a day after Walker, 29, came under fire for holding a £2,000 sex party while telling followers to stay home and protect the NHS.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Piers Morgan warned players who ignore social distancing rules ‘bring a stain on the whole industry of football’.
A source told The Sun: ‘Their kids go to the same school and spotted each other and understandably ran over.
“The families stopped to talk when all of a sudden the police swooped on them.
“It was all totally innocent and not deliberate.’
Manchester City and England defender Walker apologised over the weekend for inviting two escorts to his home while he had a friend round his flat.
One of the escorts, Louise McNamara, 21, told The Sun: ‘Kyle really should know better.
“On the one hand, he’s inviting strangers round to his house for sex and the next day he’s lecturing everyone on the need to stay safe.’
Walker, who has 48 England caps, has apologised for the incident.
He said: ‘I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made last week.
