England star Ben Stokes mocks Katie Price's disabled son Harvey

30 September 2017

Fast bowler Roland-Jones, who was omitted from England's Ashes squad on Wednesday after suffering a stress fracture of the lower back, said that the challenge of being a high-profile figure in the age of social media was something that all sportspeople needed to be aware of, after video footage emerged that allegedly shows Stokes throwing punches at two men outside a nightclub.

"Each remains on full pay pending further European Central Bank investigation and the ongoing police investigation into an incident in Bristol in the early hours of Monday 25 September".

It follows the altercation in Bristol during the early hours of Monday morning that has seen the pair suspended on full pay and left the national team in crisis.

"Each remains on full pay pending further European Central Bank investigation and the ongoing police investigation into an incident in Bristol in the early hours of Monday, September 25". Hales - who played the last of his 11 Tests for England previous year but is a regular in the One Day International side - is expected to be questioned by police next week over allegations the Nottinghamshire opening batsman kicked a man during the fracas.

But the fight may have been in response to homophobes engaging in verbal abuse with two gay men according to Piers Morgan.

It was confirmed by Andrew Strauss, the European Central Bank director of England cricket, at the Ashes squad announcement on Wednesday, that Stokes had suffered a fractured finger in the incident. He then allegedly saw that one of the aggressors was armed with a bottle and moved to defend himself.

Harvey has featured on television show Loose Women and was caught using the word 'c***'.

"Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not be considered for selection for England global matches until further notice", an European Central Bank statement said.

In addition, Strauss will be interviewing all England players who were out that evening in the aftermath of their victory in the third ODI. He along with Alex Hales have been suspended by European Central Bank and this has also put the star all-rounder's Ashes place in doubt. The former England batsman took to Twitter on Wednesday and dubbed the English Ashes team as "horrendous" and "they may as well not go". England's next worldwide fixture will be against Australia in the first Ashes Test on November 23. Another video of Ben Stokes mimicking the 15-year old disabled son of television personality Katie Price has further fueled the controversy.
