Son of Pink Floyd guitarist admits fees protest rampage

THE son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour admitted yesterday going on the rampage at a student fees protest.

Charlie Gilmour was warned he could face a jail term after pleading guilty to violent disorder but he was granted bail until July to give him time to complete Cambridge University exams.

Gilmour, who was accused of a string of offences during the riot on December 9, entered a non-specific guilty plea as he appeared at Kingston Crown Court.

The 21-year-old, from Billingshurst, West Sussex, has yet to specify whether he admits leaping on the bonnet of a car carrying royal protection officers escorting the Prince of Wales and his wife to the Royal Variety Performance.

Judge Nicholas Price granted Gilmour conditional bail as he adjourned proceedings until July 8.
