An 18-year-old college student that was protesting about rising university student fees has been jailed.
The news, which broke today, says that the student, Edward Woollard, who studied at Brockenhurst college, has been sentenced to two years and eight months. In November, he was among a group of protesters who broke in to the Tory headquarters in Central London, and gathered on the roof of the building.
Woollard then threw an empty metal fire extinguisher off the roof, which nearly hit a line of police officers that were at the scene below.
Woollard was caught on camera, and gave himself up at a police station and admitted throwing the fire extinguisher. Today, the news is that he was sentenced to the jail term for violent disorder.
Students protest about rising university fees
The students and other protesters, back in November, were protesting about the rising cost of university fees, which may be as much as £7,000 a year.
This could have a huge knock-on effect for the number of students that can afford to attend university, which will, in turn, affect how many people graduate and can get graduate jobs.
At the protests, over 50 people were arrested, as students took to the streets of London in an attempt to raise awareness of the issue, and how it may stop those wanting to go to university from being able to do so.
