The wife of an ex-Premier League football star has been arrested over claims she had sex in a park and ride car park with a married police superintendent.

41-year-old Claire Makel was arrested over the allegations she was involved in a ‘park and ride’ romp with father-of-one Gareth Blair, 48, on the 21st of May, 2019.

The mother-of-two, who lives in Lauder in the Scottish borders is married to former Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers, Hearts and Livingstone footballer Lee Makel, who is currently a coach for Hibernian.

A police spokesman said: ‘A 41-year-old woman has been arrested following a report of public indecency in Edinburgh on May 21. A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.’

The spokesman also confirmed that the police superintendent has been suspended from his job pending an investigation into their alleged car tryst.
