A violent protester who was filmed giving the Nazi salute has been jailed.
Andrew Broadbent, 44, of St Mary’s Walk in Bridlington, Yorkshire, was filmed fighting, throwing objects and hitting a man with a stick during the disorder on Saturday January 30.
Broadbent’s image was circulated to other police forces, which led to his arrest at the end of July.
He was also caught on camera giving a Nazi salute.
He was subsequently charged with violent disorder, which he admitted prior to his sentencing hearing at Canterbury Crown Court on Friday October 21.
Divisional commander Chief Superintendent Andrea Bishop of Kent Police said: ‘This is another positive outcome for everyone affected by the disorder created by Andrew Broadbent and the many others who have also been sentenced for offences committed on the day of the protests.
“The behaviour on display was totally unacceptable and it is pleasing to see the courts imposing prison terms in response.
‘I hope this acts as a powerful deterrent to anyone considering causing trouble at any future protests in Kent.’
