Sixth-former locked up for throwing extinguisher

A sixth-form student was jailed for two years and eight months today after he admitted throwing a fire extinguisher from a roof during a riot.

Edward Woollard, 18, 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, of Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire, will serve at least half of his sentence for violent disorder in a young offenders institution.
