Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and his wife, author Polly Samson, are paying psychiatry bills for computer hacker Gary McKinnon.

McKinnon suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome, and had all funding for assistance cut last month as a result of government cutbacks. He is currently fighting extradition to the US, where he would be jailed for hacking into NASA and Pentagon computers in 2001 to find information about UFOs.

“When I heard about the funding for Gary’s psychiatrist suddenly being refused I was incredibly worried,” Gary’s mother told Britian’s Sunday Express. “What will happen to other people with psychiatric problems if their funding is cut off? David and his wife Polly and Polly’s brother Joe are really good people. They never publicise the good things they do behind the scenes. They just do it and we’re so grateful for that.”
