A campaigner who was arrested in Cambridge a day before he planned to protest against the royal wedding in London has been released on bail.

Charlie Veitch, 30, was arrested on Thursday evening on suspicion of "conspiracy to cause a public nuisance".

His arrest sparked a freedom of speech demonstration outside Parkside Police Station, Cambridge, where he was held.

He has been released on bail until June.

Mr Veitch uses a megaphone in protests and runs the Love Police website.

After Mr Veitch's arrest he was taken to a police station in London.

The Metropolitan Police said in a statement: "Officers arrested a 30-year-old man at an address in Cambridge on 28 April on suspicion of conspiracy to cause a public nuisance and to prevent a breach of the peace.

"He has been bailed to return to a north London police station on a date in mid-June for these offences."
