Students around the country are protesting against an increase in university tuition fees. Many of them gathered in Trafalgar Square, London, on Wednesday morning.
Students from Sussex Coast College in Hastings, East Sussex, took to the streets of Hastings with placards to make their feelings known about cuts in the education budget.
The students are protesting against plans to increase tuition fees in England to £9,000 per year and to withdraw public funding from many university teaching budgets.
Although the protests have not become as violent as the marches held earlier this month, there have been some incidents - this man was detained by police in Westminster.
Some demonstrators set fire to placards during the protests over university fees.
A crowd carrying placards marched through Bristol and were addressed by speakers.
Lecturer Mark Taylor-Batty is at a protest in Leeds and posted this image on Twitter. "There are about 2,000 students, along with students from a local sixth form school who have walked out of classes," he said. "It's all been good-humoured."
This image was taken by Guy Hutchinson, a student at Durham University. It shows protesters who assembled outside the Town Hall in Market Square, Durham, before marching to Palace Green.
A police van, marooned in the protest on Whitehall, was attacked by the crowd.
A trapped police van was vandalised by some of those who had surrounded it, while others climbed on its roof.
Students staged a silent protest in Winchester against the government's plans to raise tuition fees.
A demonstration was also held outside Glasgow University. The national protests are being organised by the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts (NCAFC).
