Gun-gesture youth on drug charge

David Cameron visited Manchester on Thursday
A teenager pictured making a gun gesture towards Tory leader David Cameron has been charged with possession of cannabis.

The boy made the gesture during a visit by Mr Cameron to the Wythenshawe area of Manchester, where he spoke about the UK's gun culture.

The 17-year-old was charged following a raid by police officers in Wythenshawe on Saturday.

He is due before Manchester City Magistrates' Youth Court on Monday.

The teenager cannot be named because of his age.

A police spokeswoman said: "Police investigating a news broadcast in which a group of young people were shown with weapons and made reference to the use of illegal drugs have charged a 17-year-old boy from Wythenshawe."
