Mark Bridger, 35, an artist of Shotover Hill, Oxford, is to appear in court next month charged with damaging Damien Hirst's controversial dead sheep sculpture - a sheep pickled in formaldehyde - at the Serpentine Gallery in west London. The work of art, sold for pounds 25,000, had black paint added to its tank and the label 'black sheep'.
