    Arrest over fire extinguisher throwing at student march

    BBC News - Arrest over fire extinguisher throwing at student march

    A 23-year-old Cambridge student has been arrested after a fire extinguisher was thrown from a roof in central London when a protest turned violent.
    The man, who comes from Reading and studies at Anglia Ruskin University, is being questioned in Cambridgeshire on suspicion of violent disorder.
    A group emerged on the roof of 30 Millbank during a demonstration about student fees on Wednesday.
    Demonstrators surged into the building, the Conservatives' headquarters.
    Windows were smashed, fires lit and missiles hurled at police.
    Not sure how far the Federation will get with a call to charge with attempt murder but it's only luck that no one was killed.

    Don't hold your breath. The scrote should be charged and kicked out of Uni, but we all know bugger all will happen. Some minor charge and a patheic fine or community service.

    Held my breath for a couple of seconds then realised it was futile!

    I see a fixed penalty for disorder in the wind!

    I didn't know you had fire extinguishers in England. I thought all you Brits did was burn things down, not try to stop something from burning!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
