Rocker's Son Jailed

15 July 2011, 15:03

Cambridge University student Charlie Gilmour [pictured - right] has been jailed for violence during the student fees protests in London.

The son of Pink Floyd guitarist David was seen hanging from a Union flag on the Cenotaph and jumping on the bonnet of a Jaguar car that was part of a royal convoy last year.

He was also found to have thrown a rubbish bin at the car.

Gilmour, from Billinghurst in West Sussex, admitted violent disorder and has been sentenced to 16 months in prison.

Judge Nicholas Price QC said: "You have the advantage of what may be described as a privilege that comes from being part of a loving family.

You should have known better than to behave in such a criminal and reprehensible way."

The University of Cambridge said it could not comment on whether Gilmour would be allowed to return to finish his course after his release from prison.

A spokesman for the university's Girton College, where he is an undergraduate, said: "The college notes the gravity of the offence and is firmly opposed to public disorder.

Due legal process has been observed and Mr Gilmour has been tried and sentenced accordingly."
