Garden House ‘riot’ sentences

The Times carries a report on the severe sentences handed out to the students arrested in the Garden House hotel ‘riot’ in Cambridge in May this year:

Six Cambridge students were sentenced to terms of imprisonment ranging from nine to 18 months today for their part in a riot at a Cambridge hotel in February. They were convicted yesterday on charges arising out of a demonstration against the Greek regime during a Greek week event at the Garden House Hotel. Two of those sent to prison were also recommended for deportation.
