Gilmour Son Loses Sentence Appeal

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour's son lost an appeal today against his 16-month sentence for going on a drink and drug-fuelled rampage at a student fees protest.

Charlie Gilmour, 21, of Billingshurst, West Sussex, who admitted violent disorder after joining thousands demonstrating in London's Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square last year, had his challenge rejected by Court of Appeal judges.

Lord Justice Hughes, announcing the decision in London, said the court was unable to say that his sentence was ''arguably either manifestly excessive or wrong in principle''.

During the student demos last year, the Cambridge University history student 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 also kicked at the window of Topshop's flagship store on Oxford Street and ended up in possession of the leg of a mannequin.
