11 January 2011, 10:10
A sixth-form student from Hampshire was jailed for two years and eight months today (January 11th) after he admitted throwing a fire extinguisher from a roof during a riot.
Edward Woollard, 18, from Dibden Purlieu near Southampton, joined protesters who stormed inside the Millbank complex in London that houses the Tory Party headquarters on November 10.
He was filmed throwing an empty metal fire extinguisher from a seventh-floor rooftop as hundreds of people gathered in a courtyard below.
Woollard will serve at least half of his sentence for violent disorder in a young offenders institution.
