Gilmour son jailed over rampage
The son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has been jailed for 16 months for going on a drink and drug-fuelled rampage at a student fees protest.
Charlie Gilmour admitted violent disorder after joining thousands demonstrating in London's Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square last year.
During a day of riots he was seen hanging from a Union flag on the Cenotaph and leaping on to the bonnet of a Jaguar car that formed part of a royal convoy.
He was found today to have also hurled a rubbish bin at the vehicle.
The court heard the Cambridge University student had turned to drink and drugs after being rejected by his biological father, the writer Heathcote Williams, and had taken LSD and valium in the hours leading up to the violence.
