LONDON (AFP) – The climate change protester who hurled green custard into the face of Business Secretary Peter Mandelson has been arrested, police said on Sunday.

Leila Deen, 29, attended a central London police station “by appointment” on Saturday in connection with an investigation into the incident, a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

“She was arrested by officers from Westminster Criminal Investigations Department and was bailed to return to a central London police station on a date in early April pending further enquiries,” the spokesman told AFP.

Deen hurled a cupful of custard at Lord Mandelson on Friday to highlight opposition to a new runway at Heathrow airport.

She gave television interviews afterwards, but was not detained by police.

“I was slightly surprised that she could just saunter off without being apprehended… but we do not live in a police state in Britain and thank goodness for it,” Mandelson told the BBC.

As a former Northern Ireland secretary, Mandelson is entitled to round-the-clock security, but he said he prefers to live without it.
