A 33-year-old man has been charged with aggravated trespass after allegedly invading the pitch at the Oval cricket ground.

Daniel Jarvis, from Gravesend in Kent, is due to appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday October 12.

It follows an incident on Friday, September 3 in which a man gained access to the pitch at the south London ground and collided with England batsman Jonny Bairstow during the fourth test against India.
