Students set to protest in London against higher tuition fees

Thousands of students are expected to protest in London later, in a campaign against higher tuition fees in universities.

They are planning to march to the City of London, where a protest against corporate greed has been taking place outside St Paul's Cathedral.

Last year a wave of student protests ended in violent clashes.

The Metropolitan Police said there will be 4,000 officers on duty.
