Boat Race Protester Says He's Not Guilty Of Causing a Public Nuisance
THE SWIMMER who disrupted the University Boat Race has denied causing a public nuisance.
Trenton Oldfield, 35, was rescued by Chiswick RNLI after he swam into the middle of the Thames near the Chiswick Eyot during the Oxford-Cambridge clash on April 7.
He appeared at Isleworth Crown Court today (May 23), where he entered his plea.
He will stand trial at the same court on September 24.
The lifeboat volunteer group said thanks to the disruption from Oldfield and an Oxford rower collapsing, it was their most challenging boat race ever.
