Woman threw glass bottle at police officer during Bristol riot 

Katie Webster, of no fixed address, was due to stand trial this week at Bristol Crown Court before entering a guilty plea to assaulting an emergency worker.

Judge Michael Cullum yesterday (Wednesday, April 26) sentenced her to 21 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months.

Webster will also have to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work, pay court costs of £600 and undergo 20 days of rehabilitation.

Thirty-two people have so far been given immediate jail terms of a combined total of 98 years and 10 months for offences committed during the riot.

A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset police said: “We’d like to remind all concerned that criminal proceedings relating to the events of Sunday, March 21 2021 are ongoing against other defendants and that they have a right to a fair trial.

“It is extremely important there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”
