A STRETFORD man is among 26 people charged following an attack which saw a number of national newspapers delayed over the weekend.

Demonstrators from Extinction Rebellion targeted the News International premises at Knowsley on Friday night.

This led to reduced distributions of titles such as The Times and The Sun.

Dozens of arrests took place and police have now released the names of those charged with aggravated trespass.

They include Neil Traynor, 37, of Mosspark Road, Stretford, and Paul Sheeky, 45, of Wellfield Street, Warrington, who will appear before Liverpool magistrates in connection with the incident on January 8 or 13 next year.
