Students protest against police in central London

Thousands of students have marched through London as part of a protest against the police.

The march was in response to how the police handled a student protest last week, which was about plans for the students' union closing.

Forty one people were arrested then and protesters have claimed that the police were "heavy-handed".

Michael Chessum, president of the University of London Union, said he had never seen "that level of police violence" on a campus.

The Met said a small number of officers had been confronted by about 300 protesters.
