The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Police called to England Ashes’ squad party at 6am” – below is their description.
The ECB have confirmed that they are investigating an all-night party involving members of England and Australia’s Ashes squads, which had to be broken up by police shortly after 6am on Monday morning.
In a mobile phone video filmed by England assistant coach Graham Thorpe, four police officers can be seen arriving at the party to confront players including England captain Joe Root, veteran bowler Jimmy Anderson and three Australian players – Alex Carey, Travis Head and Nathan Lyon – some of whom are still in their playing whites.
The video shows Tasmania police, accompanied by hotel staff, asking the partying players to quieten down and stop drinking. “Too loud,” a female police officer is heard telling the group. “You have obviously been asked to pack up, so we’ve been asked to come.”
