Mr Meddick alleged it was politically motivated at the time, but police have not confirmed this. Mr Meddick is an Animal Justice Party MP.

After a public appeal, the 20-year-old man attended a police station at about 2.15am on Thursday.

He was interviewed by police and has been charged with recklessly causing injury and discharging a missile.
