Student Edward Woollard jailed for hurling fire extinguisher

A student who admitted throwing a fire extinguisher from the roof of a building during the student fees protests has been jailed for two years and eight months.

Edward Woollard, 18, from Hampshire, was among protesters who broke into the Conservative party headquarters, in London, and emerged on the roof on 10 November.

The BBC's Andy Tighe reports from Southwark Crown Court, where amateur footage was shown of the moment the fire extinguisher was thrown down.
