Thousands of students marched on Westminster on the second day of action against the proposed rises in tuition fees and cuts to the Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA).

Students across the country took part in coordinated national action as they walked out from classes and lectures and marched on town centres.

The protests also led to a flurry of occupations, a handful of Universities that were already in occupation by students were joined by others across the country bringing them to a total of 17.
