Just Stop Oil protester storms onto Twickenham pitch to bring rugby final to a halt 

Just Stop Oil pitch invaders met their match at Twickenham today as burly rugby players helped security staff take them away after they disrupted the Premiership Cup Final.

The protesters stormed the pitch shortly after the game between Sale Sharks and Saracens got underway, to a chorus of boos from furious rugby fans. Crowds were soon cheering triumphantly as quick-thinking staff removed them from the pitch.

England and Sale player Tom Curry, who weighs in at a whopping 17st and towers over most at 6ft 1in, lifted one of the protesters by his trousers as he gave staff a hand in removing him from the pitch.

The climate activists who struck at the home of English rugby have been identified as Bristol GP Dr Patrick Hart, 37, and Sam Johnson, 4src, a construction worker from Essex.

They ran towards the middle of the ground, where the ball was at the time, releasing the distinctive orange powder JSO activists also unleashed at the Chelsea Flower Show and recent snooker world championship.
