Eight streakers disrupt Ulster women's hockey match

An investigation is to be launched after reports that streakers disrupted a women’s hockey game at Jordanstown at the weekend.

Around six men and two women ran on to the University of Ulster pitch during a match between the university’s Ulster Elks team and Randalstown.

They are believed to be international students in their early 20s. At least two men were said to be naked, while the others were only wearing underwear.

They were waving their arms in the air, shouting and waving French and Spanish flags.

Umpires Lyn Morrow and Linda Coughlin stopped the game and allowed the invaders to make their own way off.

The group are understood to have returned wearing coats to cheer on the Ulster Elks from the sidelines.
