Cleaner sacked for taking pictures inside mansions of Manchester United players | inside World Soccer

A woman was quizzed by police and sacked from her job after she took pictures while cleaning the mansions of three Manchester United stars.

Jessica Tinsley was interviewed by police after being accused of "rummaging" around the houses of Ángel di María, Marcos Rojo, and Javier Hernández, who is currently on loan with Real Madrid.

While scrubbing and polishing her way through their luxury homes, Ms Tinsley took snaps of bedrooms, bathrooms, chandeliers, swimming pools, and even Rojo's £200,000 wage slip.

The 24-year-old insisted she only took the photographs to show off to her family but it was feared the pictures could end up in the hands of professional burglars.

She was quizzed by police earlier this month and no charges were brought, but the nosey cleaner has since been sacked by the Warrington-based Clean And Sparkle firm.

Ms Tinsley told The Daily Mirror: "I'm gutted I've been sacked - all because I took a few photos.

"I did it out of sheer nosiness - their houses were incredible - and I just had to take a photo of the wage slip because I couldn't believe how much he was paid.

"I was gob-smacked when two officers came to my door. They took my phone and deleted all the photos.

"They said they thought I would sell the photos to burglars - but I would have never done that, it's not in my character at all.

"I just showed my family - my little brother is a massive Manchester United fan."

She added: "I would clean each house a couple of times a week - I would mop and Hoover the floors, dust, and on some occasions I did the ironing.

"Most of the homes were immaculate anyway, so I don't know why they bothered hiring a cleaner."

A Manchester United spokesman later confirmed the incident, saying: "We received information from a third party which concerned us enough that we felt we ought to contact the police."

While Greater Manchester Police said: "Police in Trafford received an e-mail from Manchester United football club that gave concern for possible breaches of safety and security of Manchester United staff.

"As a result of this contact, officers from GMP spoke to a woman from the Warrington area.

"No offences were disclosed and there were no concerns about the safety and security of Manchester United staff."
