Accusations and anger after student protest chaos

Lessons need to be learned from a security lapse which allowed protesters to attack the Prince of Wales' car, Prime Minister David Cameron has said.

Those responsible for the violence at Thursday's student protest must feel the full force of the law, he added.

Scotland Yard said 12 officers and 43 protesters were injured and 33 people were arrested during the demonstrations.

A 20-year-old Middlesex University student, Alfie Meadows, suffered serious head injuries after allegedly being hit on the head with a police truncheon.

The BBC's Tom Symonds reports.
