A 23-year-old man was found guilty of an offence under the Public Order Act. He had thrown eggs at a Tory peer.

Baroness Warsi, now chairwoman of the Conservative Party, was visiting Luton last November when she was attacked. Gavin Reid, of Green Close, Luton, was sentenced to six weeks in prison at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court.

Magistrate Elizabeth Roscoe said: "Throwing eggs goes beyond legitimate political protest."
