Marines brought in to help police Boat Race

Cambridge won last year's disrupted race Credit: BBC Sport

Royal Marines will be stationed in inflatable boats along the length of the Boat Race course tomorrow to ensure the event is not disrupted by another protester in the water.

Last year's race had to be halted when Trenton Oldfield swam into the path of the two crews and narrowly avoided being struck by an Oxford oar as he looked to sabotage an event he regarded as elitist.

Oldfield was released from prison in December having served seven weeks of a six-month sentence after being found guilty of causing a public nuisance.

Cambridge won the restarted race.
