London protests: Stansted man charged with urinating by memorial to police hero
A Stansted man has been charged following an incident during the protests in central London on Saturday (June 13).
Andrew Banks, 28, has been charged with outraging public decency, the Metropolitan police announced soon after 10pm on Sunday (June 14).
He will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday (June 15).
This follows an incident where a man was seen apparently to urinate by the memorial dedicated to PC Keith Palmer.
Unarmed PC Palmer died from wounds he received when he stopped a knife-wielding terrorist from entering the Palace of Westminster on March 22, 2017. He was posthumously awarded the George Medal for gallantry.
