Bristol ‘Kill the Bill’ rioters sentenced – as woman who urinated next to police walks free from court | UK News

A woman who urinated next to police and lashed out at officers during the “Kill the Bill” riot in Bristol has walked free from court.

Fleur Moody, 26, was sentenced to an eight-month prison term, suspended for 18 months, after admitting affray.

Moody, of Montpelier, Bristol, was also handed 80 hours of community service and must complete a rehabilitation order after getting involved in the unrest which engulfed central Bristol on 21 March last year.

The Kill the Bill protest against the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts bill, proposing to give extended power to police to shut down demonstrations, was initially peaceful.

But violence broke out leaving 44 officers injured and causing at least £212,000 worth of damage to police property.

Two co-defendants were both given 21-month prison sentences after admitting a charge of violent disorder during the sentencing hearing at Bristol Crown Court on Friday.

Christopher Hind, 38, of Eastville, Bristol, was caught on CCTV displaying aggressive behaviour, including pushing and kicking out at police, over a two-hour period.

Tyler Overall, 28, of Filton, South Gloucestershire, was seen to goad and attack officers, grabbing at their shields.

So far, 23 people have been jailed for offences committed during the riot for a combined total of 81 years and three months, Avon and Somerset Police said.

A “shameful night” of violence

Supt James Riccio said: “Three more people have been brought to justice for their actions on that shameful night.

“They all displayed criminal behaviour and admitted offences due to the significant amount of material, particularly moving footage, which has been gathered, reviewed and assessed, during the course of this ongoing investigation.”

Some 500 people are said to have descended on Bridewell police station during the riot, setting vehicles ablaze and smashing the windows.

Former Avon and Somerset Police chief superintendent Carolyn Belafonte described the riot as “nothing short of reprehensible”.

Queen’s final journey: The people from all walks of life who waited side-by-side for history to unfold before them | UK News

In the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, there was a realisation among much of the crowd of thousands: history is not just in the past, but something you can witness in the present.

New university students waited patiently for hours alongside retirees and tourists from across the globe who had changed their plans to be there. At points, the hordes were 15 people deep.

“It’s just so heartbreaking”, said Laura Lang from Georgia, USA, as the cortege finally passed. “Look, I know the Queen is ‘Britain’. But she’s Queen of the world, right?”

There was a spontaneous ripple of applause as the hearse moved down The Royal Mile, past St Giles’ Cathedral, the High Kirk of Scotland, where a 24-hour vigil is due to start on Monday evening.

Watching over the scene in the city’s Parliament Square, a statue of the fifth Duke of Buccleuch. He would have recognised many of the ceremonies we have all witnessed in previous days because in the 1800s he was part of them.

“It was very moving. We were just so glad we were here,” said Patricia Parker, who is on holiday from Northampton. “I just thought it was so regal and precise. We’d never been to Scotland before.”

The rain held off until after the cortege had passed, as preparations continued for the service of reflection due to take place at the cathedral on Monday afternoon.

A fanfare could be heard through the kirk doors – presumably the state trumpeters in rehearsal. On the roofs, police marksmen watched on with binoculars, while an explosive-detecting springer spaniel darted around the TV positions.

As the inevitable rain started to fall, the crowds headed in one direction: down towards the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where the Queen’s coffin now lies at rest.
