The BBC says:

Police say they have arrested environmental campaigner Leila Deen after an incident in which green custard was thrown at Lord Mandelson.

The business secretary was confronted before he was due to take part in a low-carbon summit in London.

Needless to say, nothing will come of it. The academic middle class can get away with all sorts of criminal acts (vandalism, assault, etc.) which ordinary people could not. These so-called environmental campaigners have the same mentality as the anti-abortionists in the US. They don't like something and they cannot win the democratic (or indeed any) argument so they believe they can do whatever they want to stop their pet hate and suffer no consequences.
