Charlie Gilmour, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour’s son, has lost his appeal against his 16 month sentence for violent disorder during a student fees protest.
The Cambridge University history student pleaded guilty at Kingston Crown Court in May for attacking a shop in Oxford Street and a car in the royal convoy.
Gilmour was also photographed swinging from a Union Jack flag on the Cenotaph during the demo last December which thousands attended.
Judges at the Court of Appeal said the 21-year-old’s jail term was not “unduly harsh”.
