Government wins vote on tuition fees

The government has narrowly won a vote in the House of Commons to raise tuition fees to a maximum of £9,000 per year.

Police had earlier clashed with protesters demonstrating against the plans.

At one point police on horseback charged at the crowds in order to disperse them.
