He can be the engine of the midfield for Tottenham Hotspur when he is on his game but footballer Jake Livermore was spotted in a different sort of motor in Potters Bar this week.

The Enfield-born Premier League star was snapped filling up his £120,000 Aston Martin DB9 at the BP petrol station in High Street on Monday.

The 23-year-old, who has one senior cap for England, was spotted by lifelong Lilywhites fan Pete Mull, who tweeted pictures of the top-range sports car.

Father-of-two Mr Mull wrote on the social networking site: “Captured Jake Livermore filling up his beast of a motor in Potters Bar.”
