Oscar the Alpaca becomes pitch invader

Play had to be stopped for 20 minutes during a football match in North Yorkshire after an alpaca ran onto the pitch. Footage of the elusive Oscar has gone viral after he galloped into the game between Carlton Athletic and Ilkley Town on Saturday from a nearby farm. The alpaca appeared five minutes before half time and evaded attempts to usher it off the pitch for so long players were left feeling cold by the time play restarted. Despite the delay, Ilkley, who play in the seventh tier of English football, went on to win the game 2-0 with goals from Tom Fleming and Joe Chilaka.
