Willesden teenager charged over fees protest

James Jeffal, 19, Willesden Lane, was charged with causing fear of unlawful damage

The son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour and a Willesden teenager were among those charged with offences relating to protests against the government’s education proposals.

James Jeffal, 19, Willesden Lane, was charged with causing fear of unlawful damage following the protest on November 30 last year.

Seven young men were charged for their part in the protests including Charlie Gilmour, 21, of Sussex, who is accused of stealing a mannequin leg.

They will all appear at City of Westminster Magistrates court on February 10.

Five others, aged between 17 and 23, were given cautions for their behaviour at the central London protests last year.
