Ex-medical student, 21, filmed pouring bucket of human waste over Captain Tom memorial GUILTY

The eco-zealot seen in video pouring human excrement over a memorial to pandemic hero Captain Sir Tom Moore has been jailed ahead of her sentencing after pleading guilty to causing criminal damage in the ‘abhorrent act’.

Maddie Budd, 21, was arrested in London on Sunday over the attack at the memorial in Hatton, Derbyshire.

District Judge Louisa Cieciora said the starting point for sentencing following her guilty plea could be 18 months’ imprisonment. 

She also today declined an application for bail ahead of the sentencing hearing, telling the court she has ‘substantial grounds’ to believe Budd would commit another offence.

Budd was remanded in custody while a pre-sentence report is carried out ahead of her sentencing on October 25.

Footage of the stunt, carried out for the pressure group End UK Private Jets, shoed her drenching the monument – which honours the 100-year-old World War Two vet who raised £33million for the NHS during lockdown – in urine and faeces.
