(Newser) – Two men allegedly equipped with rope, a body bag, and a sword may have been nailed by British police outside her home, but soul singer Joss Stone is "absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal." Adds her rep, "Joss is aware of the arrests and is being kept informed by the police." Stone is believed to have been inside the home with friends when a neighbor alerted police about a suspicious vehicle outside her Devon farmhouse on Monday morning. Stone was unhurt in the incident, and neighbors say she appeared relaxed after the arrests.

“She came here for a coffee and she was all right. She was quite laid back and not in a major panic," a neighboring farmer tells the Telegraph. “It all sounds a bit bizarre and very strange. They were in a very small car and it doesn’t sound as if they were very organized." He continues, "Joss is never there on her own. She usually has a small entourage of friends staying and her brother is sometimes about."
