Gilmour faces jail for protest

Charlie Gilmour, the 21-year-old son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, has admitted violent disorder at the December student fees protest. He was warned he could go to jail but was granted bail at Kingston Crown Court until July.

He was photographed hanging from a Union Flag on the Cenotaph and is accused of leaping on the bonnet of a car carrying royal protection officers, smashing a store window and throwing a rubbish bin at the royal convoy.
