Stokes' Ashes hopes hang in the balance

Stokes' Ashes hopes hang in the balance

Katie Price has blasted cricket star Ben Stokes after a video emerged of him "mocking" her disabled son Harvey.

It is followed by a reply in Harvey's accent, "Hello, you c***' after which the cricketer bursts into laughter".

The Express on Friday published a Snapchat video of Stokes imitating Harvey Price, the 15-year-old son of United Kingdom model Katie Price.

Now, in the video that has been discovered by the Daily Express, Stokes can be heard saying, "Harvey, what do you say when people are being mean?"

The Test vice-captain, however, was named in England's Ashes squad, despite injuring his hand in the incident that led to his arrest in Bristol on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.

He then adds: "Hello you c***" and roars in laughter.

"Katie only became aware of this video this afternoon when it appeared online, but she's very upset by it", a friend of the 39-year-old told the news website.

Israel only occupies 2% of West Bank, says U.S. ambassador
About 430,000 Israeli settlers live in the occupied West Bank among 2.6 million Palestinians. And I think that's exactly what, you know, Israel has done.

Police investigating Ben Stokes' arrest have appealed for information from "two specific witnesses" who are believed to have been present prior to the incident.

"She's got no idea who Ben Stokes is, and she's never met him, so it's outrageous that he would want to ridicule her son like this", the paper quotes a friend of the mother.

Hours earlier, England had beaten West Indies by 124 runs in their third one-day global in Bristol, with Stokes scoring 73.

While Hales is next due to play for England in the one-day series against Australia in January, Stokes is facing an anxious wait to see if he will be charged given he is part of the Ashes squad that departs on 28 October.

Stokes has been suspended indefinitely and will not be under selection consideration until the investigation is over.

"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". 'We'll be looking at that but I still think our philosophy of treating players like adults is the right way to go.

Hales is expected to be questioned under caution next week by Avon and Somerset Police, amid allegations he kicked a man during a brawl outside the MBargo nightclub in Bristol.
