Silverstone invader is a priest!

The man who ran onto the circuit at Silverstone yesterday is a Catholic priest. Father Neil Horan climbed the debris fencing on Hangar Straight and then ran towards the oncoming cars before being tackled by a track marshal and dragged off the circuit. Horan wanted to publicize his belief that the world is about to end - or at least that is what he told the police. He has been charged with aggravated trespass.

Dressed in an orange kilt, with a Star of David pinned to the front, Horan carried a banner which stated "Read the Bible, the Bible is always right."
