El Nino suffers paparazzi problems

Fernando Torres stopped a police officer to complain that a photographer was following him home. The striker pulled up in his black Aston Martin to ask the officer to take action against a car that he believed was tailing him.

A press photographer in a car also stopped in Beaconsfield Road of Liverpool, near Torres’ Woolton home, was asked by the officer to stop following Torres.

The incident happened on August 2 but only came to light yesterday after photos taken at the scene were published on the internet with claims that Torres had received a speeding ticket.

Merseyside police provided more information on the incidents to clarify that Torres has not committed any offence.
