Protester on custard incident


Custard was thrown at the business secretary, Lord Mandelson, as he arrived at a government summit on environmentally friendly industries.

The stunt was carried out by a member of the organisation Plane Stupid.

The protester who threw the cup of custard, Leila Deen, says she did it because of Lord Mandelson's support for the expansion of Heathrow Airport.
