A fourth person has been charged with criminal damage following a protest at Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's home in North Yorkshire last year.

Michael Grant, 64, was due to appear at York Magistrates' Court on Thursday, according to North Yorkshire Police.

Two women and a man who were charged on Tuesday with the same offence were also due to appear, the force said.

A total of five people were arrested following the Greenpeace protest at the house in Kirby Sigston on 3 August.

The three other people who have been charged are Mathieu Soete, 38, Amy Rugg-Easey, 33, and Alexandra Wilson, 32.

Mr Sunak and his family were on holiday in the US at the time the protest took place.
