The following statement was issued by the parents of Jennifer Thompson, the woman who allegedly had sex with footballer Wayne Rooney:
"Hamish and Dana Thompson would like to provide the following statement.
"Following this statement, we will not discuss the current situation further.
"The last few days have been extremely trying for us and our family.
"Following the various newspaper articles concerning our daughter Jennifer, we would like to offer our most sincere apologies to Coleen Rooney and her family.
"This may sound somewhat hollow, but my wife and I would never condone what has or may have happened.
"We had absolutely no idea about any of the allegations and claims that have been made.
"Jennifer is our daughter and we love her and we will deal with this matter as a family, not via the media.
"We would appreciate greatly if we could be afforded a degree of privacy and time in which we can gain a better understanding of the situation.
"We would also like to make it clear that we are not interested in being interviewed by any newspaper or magazine no matter what offer has or may be made. This is also true of Jenny's three brothers (Alexander, Charlie and Max) and other members of our families.
"We will not be answering any questions from this point forward.
"Hamish and Dana Thompson."
