Gilmour freed – with an electronic tag
Charlie Gilmour, the son of the Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, was released from prison yesterday after serving a quarter of his 16-month sentence for violent disorder at an anti-fees and cuts march last year.
The Cambridge University student returned to his seafront home in Brighton and Hove and will spend the next four months wearing an electronic tag. Photographs showed him swinging from a Union Flag on the Cenotaph as MPs voted to raise the maximum rate for tuition fees to £9,000 last December.
He was handed the sentence in July after admitting his part in the disorder in Westminster.
Gilmour was seen leaping on to the bonnet of a Jaguar car that formed part of a royal convoy and was found to have hurled a rubbish bin at the vehicle.
His solicitor confirmed yesterday that he had left HMP Wayland. It has not been confirmed whether Gilmour will be allowed to return to Cambridge, where he was studying history. Speaking at his home yesterday, David Gilmour said neither he nor his adopted son wished to comment.
