Accountant Custer awarded £50 by court

An accountant who was arrested at the May Day demonstraion dressed as General Custer was yesterday given £50 because his time had been wasted.

Nigel Lovell, 27, was arrested under police powers to stop and search for failing to remove a white scarf from his face.

Lovell denied he had anything to do with the May Day protests that brought London’s West End to a standstill earlier this year.

Instead he claimed he was on his way to a fancy dress party.

But a vital video tape of the riots was not given to Lovell’s lawyers until immediately prior to the case and the trial was adjourned until next month.

Lovell, of Scarborough Road, Leytonstone, received half a day’s pay for the inconveniance, according to a report in today’s Sun newspaper.
