Charlie Gilmour, son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, has appeared in court over an attack on a convoy of cars containing Prince Charles.

Mr Gilmour, 21, of Billingshurst, allegedly threw a bin at the convoy during the student fees protest and sat on a Royal protection officer's car.

He spoke only to confirm his personal details at the short hearing in Westminster Magistrates' Court.

His bail was renewed and he will appear at Southwark Crown Court on 26 April.

The vehicle was part of a three-car convoy taking Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall to the Royal Variety performance at the London Palladium.

Mr Gilmour was also originally charged with stealing a mannequin leg, but that charge has been withdrawn.
