Fallout from nightclub brawl continues to engulf England cricketers

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

Waving to the camera, Stokes responds to his own question saying: "Hello you c***".

And his latest muck up will certainly hurt his case after Stokes was filmed imitating Harvey Price, the 15-year-old son of United Kingdom model Katie Price, who suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome.

In the video, he asks with an accent resembling that of Harvey's mother, "Harvey, what do you say when people are being mean?".

Cricketer Ben, 26, has been at the centre of controversy of late after being dropped by by England for worldwide play following his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm in the early hours of Monday.

According to The Sun, Katie is furious about the new video.

"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".

Stokes was suspended from all British global cricket matches "until further notice" following his arrest over a brawl earlier this week.

On Thursday, ECB released a statement saying Stokes will not be considered for England global matches "until further notice".

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

"Andrew Strauss, Director of England Cricket, will today refer the internal disciplinary procedure for these two players to the Cricket Discipline Commission, chaired by Tim O'Gorman.These decisions, fully supported by ECB Chairman Colin Graves, were made following the release of footage viewed by ECB for the first time on Wednesday night", the board added.

The ECB said in a statement on Thursday that both Stokes and teammate Alex Hales remained on full pay pending further investigation into the bar brawl.

Despite his arrest and release on bail with no charges being applied on Sunday night, Stokes was retained as the England vice-captain for the upcoming Ashes 2017-18 series. 'We'll be looking at that but I still think our philosophy of treating players like adults is the right way to go.

Police are aware of Stokes' version of the incident and are trying to track down witnesses to corroborate.
