North Yorkshire Police have today released an update over the egg throwing incident during the King’s visit to York.
A student was arrested after a number of eggs were thrown at the King and Camilla, Queen’s Consort, shortly after they arrived at Micklegate Bar on Wednesday 9 November.
The man, 23-year-old Patrick Thelwell, was detained by police at the scene.
He was later released on bail.
Mr Thelwell, a University of York student and former Green Party election candidate, answered bail today (Thursday).
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “A 23-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence during the Royal visit in York on Wednesday (9 November 2022) remains on conditional police bail while enquiries continue.
“The man has not been charged with any offences at this time. Please note, we do not disclose bail conditions.
“Any further updates on this investigation will be posted on the North Yorkshire Police website.”
Previously Mr Thelwell said his bail conditions included not being within 500 metres of the King, and not possessing eggs in a public place unless he’d been shopping for food.
