Superinjunction twist

The superinjunction farrago yesterday took a turn for the bizarre, when Imogen Thomas found herself being accused of blackmailing the footballer with whom she had a six month affair. The model had gone to court in an attempt to lift the superinjunction, which she said had 'trashed' her reputation, but instead found herself in the firing line, with the judge suggesting she had tried to extort £100,000 and a signed shirt from the player.
