Comedian charged over pitch invasion

A comedian accused of going onto the Goodison Park pitch and warming up with the Manchester City team before their game against Everton on Saturday has been charged.

Simon Brodkin, 35, who stars in BBC Three's 'Lee Nelson's Well Good Show', has been hit with a pitch encroachment charge under the Football Offences Act.

A man took to the Goodison pitch in the build-up to the weekend's Premier League clash dressed in a City kit. The man, believed to be Mr Brodkin, will appear at Liverpool Community Justice Centre on April 3.

Stewards noticed a man on the pitch prior to kick-off, but police say they did not delay the start of the match as a result of the incident.

Everton ran out 2-0 winners, thanks to goals from Leon Osman and Nikica Jelavic.
