Charlie Gilmour released

CHARLIE Gilmour, adopted son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, has been released after serving four months of his 16 month sentence.

Gilmour, 21, from Lordings Road, Billingshurst, was jailed in July after he pleaded guilty to violent disorder.

During last December’s protests in London he was seen swinging from the Union flag on the Cenotaph, and jumping onto the bonnet of a car that was part of a royal convoy.

An appeal against his jail sentence was rejected by the High Court in October.

Corker Binning - the solicitors’ firm which represented him in court - said he had been released on an electronic tag, and will be under a curfew for the next four months.

They added that this is standard procedure for someone who has been jailed for between three months and four years.
