Ben Stokes blasted over video mocking disabled boy

Disgraced English cricketer Ben Stokes is at the centre of further controversy following the release of a video in which he appears to make fun of a boy with significant disabilities.

The English vice-captain was suspended on Thursday after his arrest for allegedly brawling outside a Bristol pub.

Now a video has emerged of Stokes appearing to mock the son of glamour model Katie Price and former Sydney FC player Dwight Yorke.

Their son Harvey, 15, has a number of disabilities including the rare genetic condition Prader-Willi syndrome, autism, ADHD and blindness.

In a television interview broadcast on Britain's ITV last year Harvey was asked what he says to people who are cruel to him.

"Hello you c---," Harvey replied, before the presenter of the program apologised for the offensive language.

In the Stokes video, the cricketer is seen mocking the boy.

Stokes says, "Harvey, what do you say when people are being mean?"

He then waves to the camera and says "Hello you c---," before laughing.

The Snapchat video, reportedly filmed in June, began circulating soon after the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) suspended Stokes and his teammate Alex Hales for their alleged involvement in the brawl.

Price has branded the video "disgusting".

The video comes after Stokes was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after an altercation in Bristol. He was later released without charge but remains under police investigation.

CCTV footage of the alleged pub brawl was published on Wednesday, the same day that Stokes was selected for England's Ashes squad.

After the CCTV footage was released, the ECB issued a statement confirming Stokes and Hales would be suspended pending investigation.

"Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not be considered for selection for England international matches until further notice," the statement reads.

"Each remains on full pay pending further ECB investigation and the ongoing police investigation into an incident in Bristol in the early hours of Monday 25 September."

The ECB is yet to comment on the latest video of Stokes.

Price has previously lashed out at Yorke for refusing to spend time with their son.

The football player initially denied he was Harvey's father until a paternity test proved otherwise.
