Sunday Sun - - News -

FOR­MER glam­our model Katie Price has spo­ken out over a video which ap­pears to show Eng­land and Durham all-rounder Ben Stokes mock­ing her dis­abled son Har­vey.

Price wrote “Shame him” on her of­fi­cial Twit­ter ac­count, di­rectly in re­sponse to a tweeted news­pa­per re­port about the video.

The video ap­pears to show Stokes pre­tend­ing to be first Price, and then her son.

Stokes’ man­age­ment have made no com­ment at this stage, and it is not clear when or where the video was recorded.

There was also no im­me­di­ate re­sponse to a re­quest for com­ment from Price’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Stokes’ hopes of play­ing in the Ashes this win­ter are al­ready in doubt after the Eng­land team an­nounced he would not be con­sid­ered for in­ter­na­tional duty un­til fur­ther no­tice fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent in Bris­tol in the early hours of Mon­day morn­ing.

Stokes was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing ac­tual bod­ily harm after dis­or­der in the city.

He was re­leased with­out charge but has re­mained un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Avon and Som­er­set Po­lice.

Team-mate Alex Hales re­turned vol­un­tar­ily to Bris­tol on Tues­day to pro­vide ev­i­dence about the in­ci­dent. He will also not be con­sid­ered for Eng­land duty un­til fur­ther no­tice,.

The de­ci­sion to re­move the pair from con­sid­er­a­tion came after of­fi­cials at the Eng­land and Wales Cricket Board viewed footage pub­lished on a news­pa­per’s web­site.
