Middlesex Cricket tweeted that a "crossbow bolt landed on the square".

The players were then told by umpires to immediately leave the field, with many running to the changing rooms.

Cricket fans at the Oval ground have been urged to move inside after what one player described as a "metal tipped arrow" was sacked on to the pitch.
