Price hits out at star’s slurs claim
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.
