Pink Floyd star’s son climbs down

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

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
