Pink Floyd star’s son climbs down
LONDON: The son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has issued a public apology for climbing on top of one of Britain’s most important war memorials during violent student protests against rising university fees.
Charlie Gilmour apologised for the “terrible insult” to those who died for the country. He said he did not realise the Cenotaph in central London commemorates Britain’s war dead, and was ashamed of his “moment of idiocy”.
Gilmour was among thousands of students and youths protesting in the streets of London on Thursday. – Sapa-AP
