Scuffles break out in London at student tuition fees protest

Scuffles have broken out in London during a student protest march calling for the abolition of tuition fees and the retention of maintenance grants.

The "free education" march came to a stop outside the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.

A spokesman for the department said it was "committed to ensuring everyone with the potential to benefit from higher education has the opportunity to do so, regardless of their background".
