Clegg: Lib Dems are more united than ever after fees vote

Senior Lib Dems have said the party is "united" despite Thursday's rebellion over raising tuition fees in England.

Leader Nick Clegg said the party would move forward without "rancour" while Vince Cable said the coalition would be "stronger for the experience".

The government's majority was slashed as 21 Lib Dem MPs voted against the plans and five abstained.

The BBC's Ben Wright spent the day in Lewes with Norman Baker who voted in favour of the rise in fees.
