Trenton Oldfield guilty of University Boat Race disruption

A man who disrupted this year's University Boat Race has been found guilty of causing a public nuisance.

Trenton Oldfield, 36, of Myrdle Street, east London, swam into the path of crews, Isleworth Crown Court heard.

Oldfield had denied the charge, after the 158th race between Oxford and Cambridge was delayed for about half an hour, on 7 April.

Judge Anne Molyneux said all options were open to the court, including jail, when he is sentenced on 19 October.

Martine Croxall reports.
