Just Stop Oil protesters invade pitch at English Premiership Rugby final and throw orange powder on the field

Just Stop Oil protesters invaded the pitch at the English Premiership Rugby final and threw orange powder on the field.

The protest meant the match between Saracens and Sale at Twickenham was stopped for around five minutes.

The Just Stop Oil demonstrators, who are calling on the government to halt new fossil fuel licensing and production, ran onto the pitch 15 minutes into the game against a chorus of boos from the crowd.

Stewards removed them from the pitch with one tackling a protester to the delight of spectators.

It comes weeks after a Just Stop Oil demonstrator released orange powder onto a snooker table at the world championships in April.
