Three Just Stop Oil (JSO) protesters have been charged with aggravated trespass after a pitch invasion at Lord’s during the second Ashes test.

The activists from the climate change group are alleged to have disrupted the cricket match on Wednesday.

Judit Murray, 69, Daniel Knorr, 21, and Jacob Bourne, 26, have been charged with aggravated trespass and will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on July 31.

Superintendent Gerry Parker of the Metropolitan Police Service said: “We will not tolerate criminal or anti-social behaviour and there are serious consequences for people who engage in criminal acts."

JSO has been staging daily protests since April 24, disrupting high-profile events including the Chelsea Flower Show, the Gallagher Premiership rugby final at Twickenham and the World Snooker Championship.

The group has also held daily slow marches on major London roads.

It is calling for an end to all new coal, oil and gas projects in the UK.
