A man who jumped into the River Thames to disrupt the annual Oxford/Cambridge boat race has been found guilty of causing a public nuisance.
Trenton Oldfield, 36, of Myrdle Street, E1, was convicted at Isleworth Crown Court and will be sentenced on Friday 19 October.
Shortly before 2.30pm on Saturday 7 April police were alerted to a man in the water where the race was being held. The man had deliberately swum into the path of the leading boats, bringing the race to a halt.
Officers from the MPS's Marine Policing Unit attended and took the man back to the riverside where he was arrested and subsequently charged.
Oldfield had prepared for his protest by wearing a wetsuit beneath his clothing.

Oldfield, of Myrdle Street, east London, denies causing a public nuisance but admits swimming in the path of the crews. London's Isleworth Crown Court heard that Sir Matthew was immediately behind the university crews on a launch with umpire John Garrett.
